On Sunday 24th April 1932, about 400 walkers trespassed en masse on Kinder Scout in direct action aimed at advancing the cause of the thitherto frustrated countryside access campaign. Protestors and gamekeepers came to blows. The immediate result was the arrest of six men. The legacy was the creation of the first National Park in 1951.
Meet the team
Manager recommends: Get active and try the activity centre - offering outdoor activity courses to families, individuals, school trips and groups. Kinder Plateau is just behind the hostel, with stupendous views and great places for walking, climbing, mountain biking and cycling holidays. Mam Tor sits across the valley, with easy access walking and fantastic views. Or take a dip in Hathersage’s open air pool. It’s open all year so quite a challenge in the winter months (wetsuit recommended). Plenty of athletes use it for year-round training and it is also used for local triathlon events.
