The Luton Haiku project is an offshoot of Clod Magazine. Since Janaury 2007, the team has adapted the ancient Japanese haiku form to observe, characterise, criticise, remember and take poetic snapshots of the town. Luton is a large town 30 miles north of London and is remarkable for its ordinariness. It boasts a scruffy appearance, diverse population and decades of bad planning and economic decline. Luton is, however, famous for its airport and is noted as having the longest recorded skid mark in the UK, and for being the town commemorated with the highest number of haikus, anywhere in the world (both these achievements have featured in The Guinness Book of Records).
