On Monday the 24th April it is the 85th Anniversary of the mass trespass of Kinder Scout.
To mark the anniversary, there is an event being held in Edale Town Hall on Saturday the 22nd April. “Spirit of Kinder” Day.
Start time is 2pm, and it is reported that the head of the Ramblers will be a keynote speaker, along with the head of the National Trust and the Wildlife trust.
This mass march onto the Kinder plateau marked the beginning of a long campaign by The Ramblers’ Association, culminating in the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, for which we should all be thankful.
It took 68 years to bring this about and have it set in law. It is therefore something everyone who walks the footpaths of England should be proud of.
