THERE’S HOPE IN THE HOPE VALLEY – Derbyshire
19th September 2018
HOPE FOR THE BEGINING OF A MODERN SOCALIST CRUSADE ?
AN ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO REMEMBER PRIMITIVE COMMUNISM
THE HUNTER GATHERER TO FARMER AGE WAS HERE
A WALK ON MAM TOR TO KINDER SCOUT ?
WASHING OF FEET IN THE RIVER NOE ?
HOPE lies on the A 6187 to Castleton
And the Peak Caverns including The Blue John Mine
There is evidence of ancient human occupation of the area around Hope.
Mesolithic (11000 to 6000 BC) implements were found by a footpath at Win Hill.
A sandstone or ironstone Neolithic (4000 to 2500 BC ) axe was found near Hope before 1877 and is now held in the collection at Bolton Museum.
The village is close to the Mam Tor hillfort in the adjacent parsh of Castleton and human remains and Bronze Age urns were found along with a possible barrow close to the summit of Lose Hill.
A Bronze Age barrow called The Folly, with a diameter of 23 metres (75 ft), is located within the parish, close to Pindale Road.
Primitive communism is a concept originating from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels who argued that hunter-gatherer societies were traditionally based on egalitarian social relations and common ownership.
And to wet your appetite the Radical and Rene will travel the Edale Road to the Rambler Inn Edale (S33 7ZA).
I told you we were “TAKING A BREAK”
