The 50th anniversary of the opening of the Pennine Way and the Scottish model of free access to the countryside will be celebrated at the third annual Spirit of Kinder event.

Taking place on April 25 at Edale Village Hall, the event is being organised by the Kinder and High Peak Advisory Committee (KHPAC).

There will be keynote speakers including Chris Sainty, chairman of the Pennine Way Association, representatives of the Woodcraft Folk will lead the traditional singing of The Manchester Rambler and there will be an open forum on future access provision.

Admission to the event is free and all are welcome but as space is limited, people are advised to arrive early.

Complementary events celebrating the Pennine Way anniversary are also being held on April 25 by the Peak District National Park Authority at the Moorland Centre, Edale, including Ranger-led walks on April 26.
