At the beginning of 2013 we began working on a project that had been in the air for some time. The idea was to connect Beachy Head's association as a notorious suicide spot with the fact that this high chalk cliff lies at the end of the South Downs Way national trail.

With A 100-Mile Conversation we set out to look for associations between landscape and suicide - and to explore whether walking could facilitate conversations about this sensitive issue. As we travelled along the South Downs Way, we walked and talked with over twenty people, including archaeologists, historians, Samaritans, paranormal investigators, writers, psychologists, musicians, artists, a therapist, a protester, and a sociologist, as we sought to find new ways of thinking about suicide - from the personal to the mystic, and from the romantic to the scientific.
