In contrast to my working with the loud mining sounds, I have been exploring the area around Lens in search of quietness.  In fact, the whole area is pretty tranquil, although from a recording point of view it is difficult to escape the monotonous sound of traffic, which appears to be always present although thankfully fairly quiet.   The southwest seems to have fewer main roads and for that reason sounds more tranquil, and out in that direction is the Vimy war memorial, which towers above the surrounding countryside, above the noise and in a slient world all of its own.
