MPs celebrate Kinder Trespass
Bookmark and Share
Dozens of MPs have marked the 80th anniversary of the Great Kinder Trespass by signing an early day motion (EDM) supporting it.

EDM 2973 recognises the role the event played in increasing access and helping establish national parks, as well as the further work towards this cause by the Ramblers and other organisations.

It has so far gathered 75 signatures, with the bulk of these coming from Labour MPs, but also some from Conservative and Liberal Democrat members.

These include Tory MP for the High Peak seat in which Kinder is located, Andrew Bingham, while it was sponsored by Labour member for Derbyshire North East Natascha Engel.

The Manchester Rambler became a popular song with those from the nearby city whose desire to go walking on Kinder inspired the trespass and many Greater Manchester MPs have signed the motion, like Labour members Ann Coffey, Gerald Kaufman and David Heyes, alongside Conservative Graham Brady and Liberal Democrat John Leech.

EDM 3005 has also been issued expressing similar sentiments, with its eight signatories including one Manchester MP, Graham Stringer.
