'Punks do a Fireworks Run

ok so its that final time of the year for punks to do a run out into the peak district and this one should be a little different, as the date for this falls near to bonfire night we think it would be a great opportunity to go to one of the highest points in the peak district to see 100’s of fireworks displays going of at once, also bring some burgers, sausages or whatever else you like for our fearless leader to cook on the BBQ in the location we choose to view the displays, the location is yet to be announced as there are several contenders that need to be verified but the meeting point is very easy,

Sainsbury’s store, Matlock, DE4 3SP @ 17.00pm

Here we can meet up and do our usual chatting and other stuff, from here we will travel along the A6 into buxton and beyond into some of the highest parts of the district, hoping to arrive at the then organised location to set up our little party area, here we will enjoy the fireworks from the several visible counties, and send off the end of the punks season will a bang. Also as this is also very close to Halloween why not dress for occasion and scare all the locals as we drive through the towns.

hope to see you all there and more details of final location coming soon

Sorry guys I won’t be able to make this one as I am working that Saturday and I have plans later that evening. Hope you all have a great night and post loads of pics

I’ll be coming :slight_smile:

Right, unfortunately @Lokki isn’t able to make it next week, so he has put in in my (in)capable hands to flesh out and get sorted.

So - First of all - we need a spot to stop, set up BBQ and watch the fireworks - and it would help to know how many cars we need to park up - so PLEASE shout up if you are coming!

Second - My knowlwdge of the peaks is not as encyclopedic as Keiths - so suggestions of location greatfully accepted!

Shortlist ATM -

Up at the Cat and Fiddle - restricted parking since they are now closed, but good height
Stanage Edge / Burbidge - close to sheffield, should get a good view from here - Norfolk Arms might be good instead of BBQ - be warmer! and plenty of parking https://goo.gl/maps/qHFwq9Jf8Qv25QoRA

@Emily has suggested Holme Moss which looks good - no pub, but a carpark that overlooks Holmfirth and Huddersfield

Holme Moss should be good, closer to towns to look over as I’m not sure how muxch built up area can be seen from stanage Edge!

I’ll be tagging along with Lily-May and gonna invite a friend too.

Right… so… Matlock at 17:00 to Norfolk Arms in Ringinglow (close to stanage edge to see waht we can see… at least there is somewhere to get a warm and a bite to eat. if there is poor vision then we will travel up to Holmfirth :smiley:


Well… It’s chucking it down… So I’m here it gauge people’s feelings over today’s peaks meet.
Current plan is to meet in Matlock for a chin way at 5, then drive up to the Norfolk arms in ringinglow.
Who would be more interested in just meeting straight at the Norfolk arms at 6pm?
