Trespass Walks with the National Trust

The National Trust (NT) and Hayfield Kinder Trespass Group (HKTG) are jointly hosting two walks to celebrate the 1932 Mass Trespass. Several other important direct action events are being remembered this year, to mark the 200th anniversary of the Peterloo massacre in Manchester.

Kinder Scout and Downfall

Walk 1 – 5 miles:
The Trespass Trail Walk –  up the Snake path to William Clough bridge and  return by the reservoir path and down Kinder Road.

Walk 2 – 10 miles:
Starts as above but then goes up on to Kinder, joining the Pennine Way route south along the edge path to the trig point and Edale Cross, and return via the Bridleway.

Both walks start from the Royal Hotel, Hayfield, at 11am, following a talk in the function room from 10.15 about the significance of the Trespass in helping to achieve countryside access rights, a contribution to social justice for the population at large.

Come equipped with suitable clothing and footwear, waterproofs, food and drinks.

The walks will be led by NT personnel, and HKTG members will accompany each group. All are welcome, but BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL via NT. Phone 01433 670368 or visit NT web entry at
