Warning over open spaces at Kinder event

Those who like to go walking in England's open spaces must be vigilant over potential threats to their ability to do so, a gathering held to celebrate 80 years since the Kinder Mass Trespass has heard.

Addressing the event in the nearby village of Edale, Open Spaces Society general secretary Kate Ashbrook said: "We must keep the Kinder trespassers' torch aflame."

She claimed that uncertainty over the future of the public forest estate and when the coastal access law will be implemented, along with the threat to green spaces of new planning regulations and new laws making it harder to register village greens are all contemporary causes for concern.

Ms Ashcroft said the greater access enjoyed in Scotland is something those in England and Wales can only "envy", arguing that even now many illegal acts are being carried out by landowners to block access to land.

Ms Ashbrook has previously criticised her 1930s predecessor at the OSS Lawrence Chubb over his attitude to the trespass, noting he "scorned" it.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801348608-ADNFCR
