A series of Peak District Sustainable Development Fund grants are to be used to help commemorate various aspects of the heritage and history of the national park.

The largest of the six grants - totalling £64,500 - will be the £18,000 given towards a two-year project to create an archive connected with the Kinder Trespass of 1932, regarded as being a catalyst for the eventual creation of national parks in the UK.

It will include a compilation of letters, press articles and photographs by the Kinder Visitor Centre Group in Hayfield.

Another £1,500 will go towards the Kinder 80 Trespass to Treasure festival, a week-long series of walks, talks and events centred around the anniversary on April 24th.

People wishing to commemorate the event may wish to get their hiking boots on ready to follow in the footsteps of history.

Other grants include £11,000 towards the reconstruction of a Bronze Age roundhouse at the Nightingale Holiday and Conference Centre in Great Hucklow and the provision of the same amount to Electric Travel to extend the Peak District Electric Bicycle Network it runs.

Kinder Scout is Derbyshire's highest peak, reaching 2,088 ft above sea level.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801306651-ADNFCR
