The Next Gathering
The Radical Routes Summer Gathering
Dates: 12-14 August 2016
Venue Address: Lawn Cottage, Wyver Lane, Belper, Derbyshire, DE56 2EF
Wild Peak will be the venue for the summer gathering once again. We are a rural housing co-op in a very beautiful part of Derbyshire.
The whole site is in one flat field although slightly bumpy to walk over so please bring sensible shoes, a tent and sleeping bag. There is very limited indoor sleeping so please ask in advance.
Our water comes off a spring and is then UV filtered. We have not had a problem ourselves but prefer to boil it for children, so we will be offering pre-boiled bottled water for children.
Vegan Catering will be provided at around £15 for the weekend. Alternatively individual meals will be available, with prices to be confirmed.
Please e-mail to say how many people are coming from your co-op, if there are any kids (including their ages), if you have any dietary requirements or access needs. And please feel free to e-mail if you have any questions.
Please let us know at least two weeks prior to the gathering how many of you are coming, including children, so that the caterers and kid's group know how many they are accommodating.
The gathering contact is Mia who can be emailed at mrcoloma(at)gmail.com Or you can call Wild Peak on 01773850493 and leave her a message
Note: There is a strict no dogs policy as we are on a nature reserve.
Directions By train: the closest train station to Wild Peak is Belper ( Matlock Train hourly from Derby and Nottingham). From the station it is about a 45 minute walk or 15 minute cycle to Wild Peak. Exit the station to the right and walk through the car park to the A6, turn right onto this and follow till you see the East Mill then follow directions for car below. We ask that as many people come by train then walk/cycle or there is a friendly taxi firm - K's Taxis - 07866892942 and will cost £5, they also have an 8 seater. By car: take the A6 towards Belper, at the mill turn left on A517 over the bridge and first right Belper Lane opposite the Talbot Hotel then immediate right again onto Wyver Lane, . Continue along Wyver Lane to the very end (approx 2m), it is very bumpy so take slowly and it is further than you think. Please be aware we share a post code with Wyver Farm and you may be directed to this when searching for us, continue along Wyver Lane until you see the gate for Lawn Cottage. Stop before the gate, and park where you see the Parking signs - not inside the farm.
