The Folk Gathering Sept 14 - 16 2018


Getting to The Folk Gathering

The post code, for those with Sat Navs, is DE6 2FR however leave the satnav in its box if you are driving anything other than a car on its own.

Alstonefield is situated in the Peak District National Park within the Staffordshire Moorlands area. The village lies 2 miles west of the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton road, and three miles south of Hulme End which is on the B5054.

The shortest route from the A515 heading north   favoured by satnavs is marked and signed as being unsuitable for long or wide vehicles.

The best advice for those travelling from which ever point of the compass in motorhomes or cars towing caravans would to use some old technology called map reading and travel via  the B5054 to Hulme End and then turn south by the Manifold Inn – signposted Alstonefield.
