Welcome back to On The Outside! We're returning with an in-depth chat about all things Kinder Scout Trespass. Last month was the 90th anniversary of a mass trespass across Kinder Scout in the Peak District, a moment that is credited with helping to create our National Parks, and rights of way access in the UK.
Francesca is joined by Frit Tam, Ani Patas and Vedangi Kulkarni to talk about who took part in the original Kinder Scout Trespass, and why is happened. Plus, what happened at the commemorative Kinder In Colour event this year, our thoughts on events with large numbers of people in the countryside, and what do we mean by "decolonise the countryside"?
Find out more about the panel:
