Eviction Alert at 9 Ladies

The Nine Ladies protest camp is on a eviction alert, with a meeting of the Peak District National Park Authority to decide the future of the proposed quarry site scheduled for the 25th May. The word is that any decision is likely to be deferred but whatever the case the site crew are looking for more people to join them to strengthen the defences. People are asked to bring timber, polypropelene, rope, tarpaulins, vegan food (cans and non-perishable) but most importantly 'you and your interest, visits, time to build, create, climb, have fun and to promote the campaign'.

The protest site which lies between Matlock and Bakewell in Derbyshire and includes an ancient stone circle - was set up in August 1999 after Stancliffe Stone sought to invoke permission to quarry the area granted over fifty years ago.

You can reach the site by Trans Peak bus from Manchester, Derby or Notiingham to the Peacock Hotel in Rowsley. Ask for directions from there.
