Kinder Scout is probably the most popular and walked-on mountain in Britain- for many thousands of hillwalkers it provides their first real mountain experience. Surveys show that the Edale Valley at the foot of Kinder received over 250,000 visits a year.

Taking in the figures from other surrounding approaches to the mountain (Hayfield in the west, from the Snake road to the north), perhaps a million people walk on Kinder, at 2,088ft (636m) the highest point of the Peak District, every year. This book is a visual and literary celebration of a famous yet under-represented mountain. In addition to modern writing by experts on particular aspects of Kinder Scout, ranging from its geology and natural and human history to the story of the famous Mass Trespass in 1932 and modern recreational use, not just hill walking, but rock/ice climbing, fell running, and the management of Kinder by The National Trust.

The book will be illustrated completely by stunning images of the landscape taken throughout the year by some of Britains best recreational and landscape photographers.
