July 15, 2024 – Longdendale Tales – Lines on the Land (Longdendale)

Description from the organisers, Longdendale Tales Arts Collective: Archaeologist Tim Campbell-Green tells the story of Crowden Hall and compares it with the farms flooded in the valley below. We’ll skip to the 1800s – the building of the railway and reservoirs, and consider the impact these had on people and place.
And we’ll explore the marks and methods used by people for reasons of ownership, measurement… and for magical protection against witchcraft.

Plus there’s live music from Mr Magpie with songs inspired by cycling Northern England.  And thinking caps on – prepare for a classic pub quiz on all things Peak District!

Date: Monday 15th July, 2024

Time: 7:30pm – 10:00pm

Location: Crowden Car Park – Peak District NP • A628

What to expect:

Park and meet at Crowden Car Park at 7.15pm.
The event begins in Crowden woodland, next to the car park at 7:30pm.
Please be on time as we’ll be walking up to the Woodhead chapel altogether at 7:45pm and can’t wait for latecomers!
Then there will be a 1km walk (mixed terrain, off-road paths and slight ascent up to the chapel) which takes the average person 20 minutes.
There are steep steps up to the chapel door, but a handrail is available.
During the performances you will sit on chapel pews for two acts with a short interval.

Once the event is finished, at 9:30pm we will walk back to Crowden Car Park – we strongly recommend bringing a torch to help light the way for you and others.

There is no phone signal at Crowden Car Park, but there is at the chapel.

Please note: This event is not suitable for those under 18 years old. No dogs.
