Kinder - The Trespassers Route

Public Transport based walk with John Ireland.

Walk Leader Meeting at Walk Start

This walk commemorates 86 years since the Kinder Trespass of 1932 - described as one of the seminal events of the fight for access to the English Countryside, where Benny Rothman and 5 others trespassed onto the Duke of Devonshire's land at William Clough and got arrested after a confrontation with the Gamekeepers.

More on the history at www.kindertrespass.com/

The walk follows the route of the old railway from New Mills to Hayfield, then along the Kinder Road up towards William Clough and up onto the Kinder Plateau.

We then go across the plateau to Grindsbrook Clough and thence down into Edale to go the pub and get the train home.
