Kinder Scout Walk: The Velvet Hills Of Derbyshire

We went on trip north to Peak District National Park in Derbyshire after the Wedding together with the newly weds whose parents own a wonderful apartment in the picturesque valley of Cressbrook Mill. I didn’t know anything about it before because I didn’t have any time to read something about it or to look at some pictures and what shall I say? It was totally gorgeous. Not only that the english landscape surprised me in a way I’d never had thought of, but as well because having friends like this and having the opportunity to connect with them, hike with them and have a marvelous time with them was so precious.

On our first day we hiked the Kinder Scout Walk in the brightest sun England has ever seen :-). This is not only a fantastic hike but as well a historic path: In 1932 400 people walked this trail to fight for the right to roam, the so called Kinder Scout mass trespass.

  1. Great post. We love the Peaks District. We hiked several paths (Stanage Edge, Monsal, Derwent Reservoir, Chatsworth Estate and others) in 2017. We can’t wait to go back. Allan

    • Shame on you, Shazza, for not having been there 🙂 . But seriously: It’s really marvelous. We came from 2 month hothothot weather in Germany and expected some shade giving clouds when planning to hike in the UK. But.
      We even swam in a river. I guess you don’t do that very much over there 🙂 (or only when you are one of those “I swam across the Channel” guys)

      • I think its because we always seem to head to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales ( both very lovely too) for short trips and this year we are off to Scotland for our Summer hols. We will get there eventually I am sure!! 😁. I haven’t swum in a river either. So unadventurous ! This year may be the year though. X
