BE KINDER was created in collaboration with former Pulp front man & BBC Radio 6 presenter Jarvis Cocker, Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller, INSTAR artists who worked with local community groups & a whole host of talented folks!

The trail encourages people to think about the importance of being kind to this incredible natural habitat, as well as honouring the individuals who fought for our rights of way; allowing future generations to enjoy and protect this spectacular landscape.
