Son and daughter of trespassers to return to Kinder
Bookmark and Share
The son of one of the leaders of the Kinder Trespass of 1932 is to take part in a re-enactment of the event 80 years on next month.

Harry Rothman, whose late father Benny was imprisoned for his part in the incident, will be travelling from Wales to Derbyshire to participate on April 24th, Grough reports.

And Jan Gillett, whose father Tona was the other man put behind bars despite only being present as an observer, will also be bringing her walking boots.

A week of commemorative events has been arranged by Kinder 80 - a coalition of bodies including the Peak District National Park Authority, the National Trust, the Ramblers and the British Mountaineering Council.

Kinder 80 chairman Roly Smith recently commented: "The trespass anniversary has become an important date in the outdoor calendar, and many people believe that the sacrifice made 80 years ago by these ramblers should never be forgotten."

The police station where several of the trespassers were held after being arrested is in nearby New Mills, where it now serves as the town's heritage centre.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801311287-ADNFCR
