Public Transport based walk with Steve Rawlins.
"In 1932 around 500 walkers, mostly from Manchester, trespassed en masse and walked from Hayfield to Kinder Scout to secure access right to open country for all to enjoy forever. So walk in the footsteps of the trespassers and enjoy what others fought so hard for."
This walk coincides with the anniversay of the Kinder Tresspass and we'll mainly be following the original route but depending on the weather I may decide to chuck in an extra little hill or something.
The walk is mostly on good paths, tracks and trails with some lovely scenery and great views should we slightly detour and climb up Lantern Pike.
Once we get to Kinder Reservoir we'll then head back towards New Mills via Hayfield - a lovely little picturesque village. Here will be a number of events (food/drink/music) to commemorate the original Kinder Tresspass. More details can be found here:
Once we're done in Hayfield we'll then pick up the Sett Valley trail back into the Hayfield. Depending on time we may go back via the Millennium Bridge.
