A hikers paradise with peaceful & beautiful trails in all directions. Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Peak District at a height of 2,087 feet. On 24th April 1932 a group of peaceful protestors took to private land across Kinder Scout and joined the ‘Mass Trespass’ to highlight the restrictions of walking in the open country.
Following this, a legislation was put into place to allow people to walk freely on access land through the UK. This protest was also a contributory factor in the creation of the Natural Parks, the first being the Peak District. Edale is the start of Pennine Way which is one of the most famous long distance walks and nicknamed ‘The Backbone of Britain’. The trail is 268 miles from Edale to Kirk Yetholm on the Scottish border.
