This weekend in Birchover in the peak district, the Megalithic Portal are holding their second weekend of free guided walks and talks with archaeologists and prehistory experts. Last year’s day at the Bullring was very well attended with a lot of prehistory enthusiasts talking shop and well worth attending. This year they have added guided walks and an extra day, so it should be even better. The highlight for us being Heritage Action’s very own Jamie Stone guiding a walk up Gardom’s Edge on Sunday morning!
