The UK's five weirdest sounding places

Post by simonwheeler »

We're all familiar with sightseeing, but what about "soundseeing"? There are places where what you hear is not what you would usually expect, says Trevor Cox, professor of acoustic engineering at the University of Salford.
Taken from the BBC website.
Segments on:
St Paul's Cathedral Whispering Gallery, London
Wormit water reservoir, Dundee
Greenwich foot tunnel in London
Bitterns at Ham Wall, near Glastonbury
Anechoic chambers around the UK
(Some linked to sound files as exemplars.)
