EIGHTY years ago around 400 intrepid ramblers asserted their rights to roam in an iconic movement that would open up large areas of countryside to the public.

That moment in history – the Kinder Trespass – has long since entered the realms of rambling mythology and lead to the creation of the National Parks.

Celebrations are taking place to mark the anniversary of the 1932 protest which saw groups of ramblers scuffle with gamekeepers on the Kinder Scout.
