2018

The 2018 Blackstone Edge Gathering is on Sunday 6th May.
Meet in the car-park below the White House pub at midday or at the gathering site around 12.30.  Or join one of the walks up from the valley, from Todmorden or from Hebden Bridge.

WARNING  –  Please be aware that the Tour de Yorkshire cycle race will be going through Halifax – Mytholmroyd – Hebden Bridge – Oxenhope – Oakworth that day, so access to Blackstone Edge via the Calder Valley (Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd, Cragg Vale) will be restricted.  Road closure times are likely to be available in March with more information about the route of the race.

Who’ll be there?
The poet Ian Parks and his songwriting partner MIck Jenkinson plan to join the 2018 Gathering.   They have a song about Holberry and the Sheffield Rising called For Liberty and the Charter.
