Winnats Pass DIX02_01_029

WINNATS PASS, CASTLETON, HIGH PEAK, DERBYSHIRE. A couple standing at the head of Winnats Pass. In the early 1930s Winnats Pass was the site of a rally, attended by 10,000 people, to campaign for access to the moors and other open countryside. Around the same time a mass trespass of nearby Kinder Scout by ramblers and members of the Young Communist League took place. This act of civil disobedience occured just 5 months before the passing of the Rights of Way Act in 1932 and arguably helped to pave the way for the establishment of Britain's first National Trail, the Pennine Way long distance footpath in 1965
