Upcoming Events | National Parks and Trails Cohort Activities Midlands Group (Birmingham, United Kingdom)

On 24th April 1932 around 500 walkers, mostly from Manchester, trespassed en masse and walked from Hayfield to Kinder Scout to secure access rights to open country for all to enjoy forever.

After what became known as the Kinder Mass Trespass, five men were arrested and imprisoned for “riotous assembly”.

That right to roam for which they fought is now ours to enjoy and what better way to do it than follow in their footsteps a mere 88 years on.

This is a moderately hard walk so only for those used to walking the hills. We plan to follow the route proposed by the National Trust which can be found at:- http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/dark-peak/things-to-see-and-do/view-page/item615841/

In the “trespass” spirit there is no individual leader for this event so if you are competent to do so bring your own map and compass along and contribute to a group leadership to achieve the route as suggested.

Meet / parking point is the Bowden Bridge P & D car park just past the Sportsman pub and near the camp site.

Meet 10:15am for prompt 10:30am start.

If coming by public transport we can pick you up from Hayfield or possibly Buxton and Glossop.

Overall distance: 9 miles

Accumulated ascent: 675m
