Chesterfield Pagans Open Samhain Ritual

Hail all, this comes from Gwen:

The Chesterfield Pagans Samhain ritual will be on Saturday 29th October and is open to all.  The gathering begins at 7.30pm and is at the New Inn, Mansfield Road, Hasland, Chesterfield (the usual place for the monthly moots!)

Please bring something for the food share, fancy dress is optional.  There will be a pumpkin carving competition during the evening, and please bring a pumpkin light, or lantern to light during the course of the ritual.

The usual drumming and late evening fire will also happen, just for those who want to spend a while lost in rhythm and remembrance.

    There are lots of good places round Chesterfield and the North of the county which are worth a visit:
    If you want to stay in the town, Queens Park is worth a trip, there’s a beautiful painted lady under the bridge. There’s a walk round Walton Dam which is nice beginning just near the Morrisons. Ellis’s ( in the Shambles) or Organic Heaven (Theatre Yards) in the centre of town are good for food, and further afield there’s the Nine Ladies stone circle up on Stanton Moor (which also has the Corkstone), Arbor Low stone circle and henge, Beeley Moor, Linacre Reservoirs (though the waters are bit down right now). The river running through Bakewell often has huge brown trout in, especially in the last few weeks! Chatsworth estates and the surrounding park – there’s a herd of fallow deer often visible over the river and a really nice farm shop. If you go a little further north and west, there’s the Hope Valley with Winnats Pass, the Peak Caverns and Mam Tor nearby. Stanage Edge above Hathersage is worth a day’s walk, Monsal Dale or Lathkill Dale are also good for walking…
    You could go out to the Chestnut Centre if you wanted somewhere specific to visit – it’s a small rescue centre for owls and otters. Hmmm, so many places 🙂
    Was it a walk, or drive or attraction visit you had in mind?
