99 years ago Ethel Haythornthwaite founded what has now become the Campaign to Protect Rural England’s Peak District and South Yorkshire branch. Yet, unlike the Kinder Mass Trespass, very little is known about her and the role she played in protecting green areas - like Longdendale - from development back in the 1900s. In today's podcast, Clare Savory walks along Bottoms Reservoir with Cassa Townsend, engagement lead at the CPRE PDSY. Together they follow the green circles on fence posts marking the park boundary from Roughfields to Tintwistle. Maps and directions of all 20 stages of the CPRE Peak District Boundary Walk are here: https://www.cprepdsy.org.uk/peak-district-boundary-walk-2/ Visit https://www.LongdendaleTales.co.uk for more information about our digital map and 28-part walking podcast series.
