Kinder activities 'enjoyed by over 1,000'
Bookmark and Share
More than 1,000 people took part in activities staged last month to mark 80 years since the Great Trespass on Kinder Scout.

Despite some wet weather, 1,250 people enjoyed the chance to go walking on the once-forbidden mountain, as well as attending other events such as talks and musical events, reports Grough.

Chairman of the Kinder 80 committee Roly Smith said: "It says something about the spirit of local ramblers and their love of Kinder that they turned out in such numbers to our events in what were really atrocious weather conditions."

The trespass, which saw clashes between trespassers and gamekeepers, led to five people being imprisoned and is regarded as a key milestone in the battle for greater countryside access.

While the clashes involved a group led by Benny Rothman climbing from the Hayfield side via William Clough, but there was also a second group from Sheffield who managed to cross the plateau unmolested before meeting the Hayfield trespassers.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801361808-ADNFCR
