PC 156 More Summer Festivals 2
July 2002 - New Mills in Derbyshire and Lincoln
Hitched to Sheffield and then took the train to New Mills for the OneWorld Festival
This was a small one day family festival, with a stage and about 45 leaflet stalls from various charities and pressure groups. (The Fairtrade Stall with it's demonstration of trade terms was the best : Large dices one with 5 sides of sixes for us and one with 5 sides of ones for the developing world.) We set up on Saturday morning. The festival ended at 6 and we had the place cleaned up by 9, then I went back to Ester and Steves house.
Sunday : I walked up the hill for a view of the Derbyshire peaks and Kinder Scout. Then we had a after festival at Mike and Carol's.
Monday : I took the Snake Pass Road from Glossop back across the Pennines stoppping to walk a little at the Pennine Way and Lady Bower Resevoir, getting caught in the rain a little bit..
