Heather-clad moors of Kinder to the gritstone tors of Derwent Edge
The wild Pennine moorlands are of international importance for their populations of breeding birds and mosaic of habitats.
Sites of particular interest include Mam Tor, with spectacular views, landslip and prehistoric settlement, the famous Snake Pass and Alport Castles in Alport Valley. Kinder Scout, where the Mass Trespass of 1932 took place, is the highest point in the Peak District and is the location for a lot of our current conservation work in the Dark Peak.
The Trust also owns the Penny Pot Café, Dalehead Bunkhouse and several farms in the beautiful Edale Valley. Edale village marks the start of the National Trail, the Pennine Way, that crosses 3 National Parks.
