UKFEchat weekend in the Peak District

Fancy meeting up with your pals off the Twitter for a stroll, a pint, a tent (or youth hostel or lovely B&B... Whatever you like, it's your hols)?

Well your dreams are about to come true from Saturday 8th - Sunday 9th August. 

But where will this gathering of mates old and new take place?

Well it's good news for all you fans of the plague... We're off to Eyam.

We're meeting at 10am on Saturday in the sports car park in Eyam. This is located behind the centre car park and is  the one with the toilets and museum. Join in a gentle hike in the lovely hills on Saturday and a shorter stroll on Sunday. Saturday night we'll be in The Miners Arms pub for a sweet sherry.

 There's a lot to explore in the beautiful village as well a a historic church and museum. Get involved in as much or as little as you fancy. Come for an hour or the whole weekend.

It was trickier than expected to find a camp site nearby. The North Lees Campsite is nearly 5 miles away but looks good. If you find anything nearer, please give us a shout.
