Unlike the eyes, we can’t close our noses. We breathe 24,000 times a day immersed in smells, but only paying occasional attention. Smellwalking – walking ‘nose-first’ – proposes a new knowledge of place – what can we learn about Whitstable from the way it smells? Leave your assumptions and embarrassment at home – this sniffing activity is always surprising and attracts curiosity from onlookers!
