Once again another fascinating and inspiring TNA Field Trip to Anglezark Moor conducted by Paul Bennett (The Old Stones of Elmet) & John Dixon (Journeys through Brigantia).
Pikestones Chambered Tomb SD 627 173
Good parking at Jepson’s Gate SD 624 169 – short walk to Pikestones
Pikestones to Round Loaf – ¾ mile moorland walk from Pikestones.
Round Loaf is a large Tumulus (unexcavated)
Return to transport
To Belmont Road at a point SD 647 152 to nip up to Noon Hill Tumulus SD 647 150.
Then a short romp brings us up to the summit of Winter Hill to view the Bronze Age burial cairns located there – superb views over Lancashire, the Lake District & North Wales - & if we are lucky, the Isle of Man!
GETTING THERE: To meet up at 12 noon @ Jepson’s Gate (Comvoy Meet Up: 11.30 to 11.45am @ the Hoghton Arms car park that stands on the Chorley Road as you come off the No: 3 M65 escape route).
Where is all this consumer traffic going with such unacceptable haste and noise?
The mighty 'Ship of State' is but a 'Ship of Fools'
Masted in false tradition, decked in corrupt dogma, crewed by endless rules
Its course to the Ocean set on a waterless canal
Over the bank a tiny rill flows, wending and weaving to a destiny immortal
An ocean without shore
Step of the motorway, walk in the fields
The vehicle was illusion, you are real
M65 to No: 3 escape route, then take A674 9 (Chorley) for 3miles to Heapey – then use a map to aim for north tip of Anglezark Reservoir then along Moor Road to Jepson’s Gate.
I trust that the above is OK with everyone - let me know if changes are needed
