Free guided walk on Kinder Scout, Local residents and visitors are warmly invited to take part in a free Bogtastic walk on Kinder Scout to discover ‘moor’ about moorland conservation. After the walking community celebrated the 85th anniversary of the historic Kinder Mass Trespass in April, the Moors for the Future Partnership is hosting the guided walk to showcase conservation works to reverse the fortunes of the iconic moorland plateau. The six mile ramble will follow Grindsbrook and is set to take place from 11am on Sunday 21st May. Walkers will get to see first-hand the transformation from bleak, black bare peat of a few years ago into the re-greened and recovering active blanket bog that we see today.
