Famine and Feast in the Peak District
Bookmark and Share
People who love to go walking in the Peak District might want to undertake a ranger guided walk and one upcoming event offers a stroll across the highest mountain in the national park.

Held on October 7th, it starts at 10:30 BST at Bowden Bridge Car Park near Hayfield, before ascending Mount Famine and then turning southeast onto Kinder Scout.

The walk covers ten miles of tough ground with steep ascents and those taking on the 2,088 ft mountain have been advised to wear walking boots, waterproofs and the right clothing for the weather.

Bowden Bridge is a very popular starting point for ascents of Kinder, both as the nearest car park on the Hayfield side and as the place where the 1932 Kinder trespassers gathered before setting off up the mountain.

Their route followed the Snake Path public right of way before they began the trespass below Sandy Heys, but walkers can also approach the peak from the Tunstall side, climbing up via Kinder Low.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801458885-ADNFCR
