The Kinder Trespass

The Kinder Trespass of 1932 is recognised as the significant moment in the history of Rambler’s Rights, and the creation of national parks globally. James Watts’ gamesman, Edward Beever, was injured on the day. The disturbances had little to do with the dynamics of Hayfield per se, but the well organised trespass took place on the most prominent and accessible summit in the north west to make their point.
