Switch off in our 'Silent Space'

Snowdrops in the woodlands at Acorn Bank

Since 2016, Acorn Bank has been taking part in 'Silent Space', a national initiative which encourages people to switch off their phones and enjoy five minutes of silence in nature.

We've chosen an especially peaceful place for this year - all you need to do is close your eyes, take a deep breath and soak up the sounds and smells of the woodland which surrounds you.

This year’s Silent Space is a woodland clearing looking out across farmland towards the Pennines. It’s the perfect place to listen to busy woodpeckers and imagine the adjacent drift mine working in its heyday. This Silent Space will be available for peace-seekers seven days a week, between 10am-4pm.
