Earlier today I was walking along a leat up a wooded valley trying to listen to the birdsong above the din of the bypass that was constructed through this once roadless haven. Yes there has been a railway through it since the 1890's but they were always intermittent, more so recently, while the dual carriageway is relentless, even at 3 am someone just has to drive along it.

Then I heard about this:

I wonder if it would be possible to have a 'Silence Day' when selected bits of road like that above closed for 3 hours so we could just for while relive the past.
