Choir to kick off Kinder 80 celebrations
Bookmark and Share
A male choir from the nearby village of Chapel-en-le Frith will kick-off commemorations of the 80th anniversary of the Kinder Great Trespass.

The launch at the Moorland Centre in Edale on the anniversary date of April 24th will also feature broadcasters Stuart Maconie and Mike Harding, with the latter leading the singing of the "Manchester Rambler" song.

Also present will be Kate Ashbrook of the Open Spaces Society and special guests Harry Rothman and Jan Gillett, children of two of the trespassers.

The following day will see a re-enactment of the events of 80 years ago as groups of walkers from Hayfield and Sheffield climb the mountain and meet on top.

Other events include walks all around the area, from an eight mile trespass walk from New Mills on April 21st to a short health walk on April 26th, starting from Glossop Railway Station.

New Mills is where some of the arrested trespassers were detained and the building housing the cells is now the town's heritage centre.
