Kinder Scout – The people’s mountain” by John Beatty and Ed Douglas. Come and meet the authors, enjoy an illustrated presentation and purchase your specially signed copy! Kinder Scout is sacred ground, a hill that knows it’s a mountain and the focus not just for the long campaign for access to the hills but the centre of the UK’s first national park. John Beatty is one of Britain’s leading outdoor photographers and grew up within sight of Kinder. He has spent more than fifty years exploring and photographing it in all weathers and seasons. Ed Douglas is a writer and journalist from Sheffield, who also began his outdoor life forty years ago on the mountain. They have spent the last five years working on a book of pictures and words that tell Kinder Scout’s story and reveal its magic.
