Deep dales and wild places


Deep dales and wild places
A new story for the Moorlands
with Gordon MacLellan


Wednesday 17th February 2016
Flash Village Hall
(off A53 between Leek and Buxton)
7.30 – 9.30pm
SNOW WARNING 16TH FEB: HEAVY SNOW IS FORECAST FOR THE AREA TOMORROW. I WILL AIM TO POST STATUS ON HERE BY 4 PM TOMORROW (no, happen we're not bein' nesh: the road to Flash closes quickly!)

From the Dale of Goyt to the sweep of the Warslow moors, the South-west Peak is a landscape full of variety and excitement. Old stories are embedded in these hills with Gawain hunting for his Green Knight, stray mermaids, lost loves and wandering brigands.

This evening will explore some of those old tales and invite people to add ideas about the Moorlands today and help start some new stories.

Where are your favourite places, dreaded places, secret places, wild and windswept treasures, where are best places for picnics, or long walks or playing or walking the dogs? We will gather those ideas and feelings and start spinning a new landscape of stories and poems.

Join me for an evening of ancient tales and modern wonders
