Find meaning in Middleton-by-Youlgreave

16th May 2011

Our trustee Anthea Rawlence is a woman on a mission. She was mystified when she spotted a sculpture on the road between Gratton and Middleton-by-Youlgreave.
 
“Every time I went past I stopped to have another look, but I had no idea what it was all about. I asked around and eventually I found out about the Sites of Meaning project,” said Anthea.
 
Sites of Meaning is a project that marks the seventeen entrances to the parish of Middleton and Smerrill with boundary stones, each inscribed with a text chosen by members of the parish.  Once she discovered this, Anthea decided to team up with Peak Park ranger Frank Mason and organise a Sites of Meaning Walk around the area to see some of these remarkable markers.
 
“I’m really pleased that Frank is going to lead the walk because he knows loads of interesting things and is great at answering questions. Plus, of course, it’s a beautiful place for a stroll,” said Anthea.
 
The walk is at 1.45pm on Saturday 18 June, and should take about three hours. It costs £2.50 per person and will raise funds for Friends of the Peak District.
