    Megalithic meetings?

    Post  revnox on Sat Jun 05, 2010 5:01 am

    Are there any in the north?
    I asked on The Modern Antiquarian and it was suggested to me to come here by a gentleman called moss.

    Hi Revnox -

    Any meetings you mean? - as in the little picnics & stuff like they have down Avebury, I'm afraid ours are a little more physical, inasmuch as we tend to wade across moorland, off-path, quite a lot of the time. They're quite tiring, and of late it's been after 10pm when we return.

    We do meet up most Thursday mornings (which aint always good for those who work 9-to-5) and get out to known sites, but then check the landscape for others that seem to be indicated. But assuming it's OK with everyone else, you're quite welcome to come along. Our next gathering hopes to explore some sites near a tiny place called Blubberhouses in North Yorkshire - but that may change. We sometimes don't know where we're gonna be until 48 hours beforehand! So I'll send you a personal message about the arrangements closer the time. Hope that's OK.

    Oh - and welcome to TNA! Smile

    All the best - Paul

    This is rather a moot point.

    Sorry have I missed something?

    Thank you Paul.
    I will not be up for long walks at the moment as I have a dodgy spine.
    I will pm my mobile and work telephone number.
