Our Managing Director Maxwell Ayamba has written a chapter in a recently published book entitled Forbidden Kinder: The 1932 Mass Tresspass Re-visited by Keith Warrender.
Keith a local historian and writer known for his books about Manchester, turned his attention to chronicling the Mass Tresspass of Kinder Scout in 1932, a historic event that featured the contested green spaces of Kinder moorlands and its peak Kinder Scout – a place in the Peak District sandwiched between Manchester and Sheffield. Keith’s book features contributions from many people, and the chapter that Maxwell wrote offers a unique perspective on contested spaces. The book, Forbidden Kinder, “traces the beginnings of the idea for the 1932 Mass Trespass and examines the ramblers’ confrontation with the keepers and its aftermath in the fullest and most comprehensive account ever published.”
Other contributing writers include ex Labour Minister Lord David Blunket.
The book Forbidden Kinder was launched at the 90th Kinder Trespass anniversary event at the Royal Hotel, Hayfield 23rd April 2022.
