Mass trespass re-enacted
Bookmark and Share
The Ramblers have been re-enacting the Kinder mass trespass of 1932 this week as part of the organisation's 75th anniversary celebrations.

Kinder Scout was off-limits to walkers at the time of the trespass and the action led to the leaders of the original protest being arrested, but the momentum gained from the event led to the Ramblers' Association being formed three years later.

Benny Rothman led the march, having addressed fellow walkers in a quarry near the village of Hayfield, where a plaque commemorating the trespass is now situated.

Those keen to make the most of their current freedom to walk the High Peak moors may wish to invest in some walking gear and a fleece to deal with the stronger wind that sometimes blows across the flat plateau.

Kinder Scout is the highest point in Derbyshire, at 2,088 ft, with Bleaklow being the second highest at 2,077 ft.

As well as climbing it from Hayfield, Kinder can be ascended from the Snake Pass or Edale via the Pennine Way.
