Kinder Scout, Derbyshire Peak District, UK: a high moorland gritstone plateau covered with blanket peat that at 635m forms the highest point of the Peak District and the highest point in Derbyshire.
In 1932 about 500 men and women ascended Kinder Scout as part of the right to roam movement. Blows took place between ramblers and the Duke of Devonshire’s gamekeepers, and five ramblers were arrested that day. Nevertheless, the trespass was significant in the move towards the eventual national parks legislation, and in 1951 Britain’s first national park, the Peak District was created.
Wild, windswept, it speaks another world.
