Sunday 4th May 2014
Year 7 of our annual gatherings to remember the Chartists. About 40 people, accompanied by 3 paragliders, walked up to the cliffs at the end of the Blackstone Edge ridge to picnic and to sing – or listen to the singing. Nine of us walked up from Todmorden, via the Basin Stone. Three walked up from Littleborough and everyone else started from the car-park below the White House pub. Nick Wilding came along and filmed the singing. A fine, dry day. Not sunny, but no rain. Singers from Calder Valley Voices and East Lancs Clarion Choir, with individuals joining in, making use of East Lancs Clarion’s word-sheets. Singing led by Janet Russell. The throng joined by Friends of Clarion House (Newchurch-in-Pendle) and many supportive individuals.
