Back in 1951 the Peak District was designated the UK’s first national park: a commitment to protect and preserve our countryside and wild places. This national park is home to Kinder Scout, Britain’s most popular ‘mountain’.
Kinder’s story is marked by the passage of millions of feet and centuries of farming. It’s a graveyard for lost souls and doomed aircraft, a sacred canvas on which mankind has scratched and scraped its likeness for millennia.
In this unique collaboration, Douglas and Beatty reveal the social, political, cultural and ecological developments that have shaped the physical and human landscape of this enigmatic and treasured hill.
Last year, we spoke to John Beatty about his love of Kinder. Read Man of Kinder for his story.
