North Yorkshire Moors.
Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th of September, 2007.

On the other day, possible sites to visit include: -

*Wheeldale Roman Road/Wade’s Causeway (Interesting article about the Giant Wade here -
*The Wheeldale standing stones (http://www.themodernantiquaria[...]ite/2236/wheeldale_stones.html)
*The Low and High Bridestones (http://www.themodernantiquaria[...]site/4709/low_bridestones.html and http://www.themodernantiquaria[...]site/281/high_bridestones.html )
*A walk along the ‘Old Hell Way’ corpse road near Danby
*Lastingham Crypt (

… Or anywhere else anyone fancies visiting in the area! We are open to suggestions!

Foul weather alternatives include the Whitby Museum, where there is an exhibition of some of the finds made on Fylingdales Moor ( and the Ryedale Folk Museum (

For folks wanting to do both days, we intend staying overnight in Goathland. There’s a wide range of accommodation in the village, people should arrange what’s suitable for themselves, and we could all meet up in the pub on the Saturday night!
Here are a few suggestions for places to check out : -

Camping and Bunkbarn at Abbotswood Farm (
