Following our recent article about this weekend’s Megalithic Portal event of free guided walks and talks with archaeologists and prehistory experts in the Peak District, Andy Burnham has provided the following amended details:
Hello, thanks for the nice write up of last year. I have realised that the postcode given in my summary above takes Satnavs to the wrong end of Birchover Road so could I correct the directions and parking as follows:
The hall is at SK 236 621 (Postcode: DE4 2BL). Suggested parking is along the road ‘The Mires’ as you come in to Birchover from the B5056. Please note there is NO parking immediately by the hall. Parking for Stanton Moor is at the east side of the village at SK 241 625. From here follow the footpath from the rear of the car park, which is a 500 m walk downhill to Birchover.
There are still plenty of places on Tim’s Nine Stones Close walk, Jamie’s Stanton Moor walk and Guy’s Stanton Moor walks but please note there are only 60 seats in the hall so I think it’s going to be very full up for the more popular talks. There may only be standing room if you can manage that. We will get a bigger venue next time but the location where we are is so good that we had to go for it.
There should (phone signals permitting) be live tweeting on the day – join in with hashtag #megplive
