CATHY Streeter re­turns to Ash­ford town cen­tre to­mor­row (Fri­day) for her lat­est un­usual chal­lenge.

The Ash­ford-based artist, whose last project was draw­ing cows on the walls of the old El­wick Road mar­ket site, has now re­ceived fund­ing for a study of the al­leys and lanes in the heart of the town.

The project will even­tu­ally lead to in­stal­la­tions there as part of the Art and Ar­chi­tec­ture fes­ti­val in Septem­ber.

Called Hid­den Pas­sages, the artist wants to dis­cuss sto­ries of an­cient and present rights of way, many with me­dieval ori­gins, that may have been for­got­ten over the decades.

She will be in The Ge­orge Ho­tel from 10am to 1pm to­mor­row (Fri­day) to lis­ten to and record sto­ries.

She said: “It is a fas­ci­nat­ing his­tor­i­cal project with many un­known facts.

“Not many re­alise there is a pub­lic right of pas­sage through The Ge­orge Ho­tel from the High Street to Park Street, and to prove it some­one once drove a flock of geese through the pub.”
