Inspired by the evocative words and images in The Lost Words of Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, we wanted to show that far from disappearing, these words can all be found in our outdoor spaces, if we only take the time to look.
The response across all ages was more than we could have hoped for. Our Portals keep safe every memory, story, poem, drawing or song shared, and help strengthen the power of the words we find. Please take a wander through our Portals by clicking the Gateway link below – and enjoy!

The Keeper would like to give special thanks to Anna Ridley, Jessica Woollard, Russell Morgan, Ruth Golby, and of course Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris, without whom this project would have become well and truly ‘lost’.
