WIGAN broadcaster Stuart Maconie will be celebrating the achievements of the Kinder Scout Mass Trespass this week.

The former Worsley Mesnes resident will visit Edale village to mark the 1932 battle between a group of young ramblers led by Manchester Communist Benny Rothman and the gamekeepers of the Duke of Devonshire on the Peak District’s highest hill.

The celebration includes a week of nearly 30 walks, talks and other events in and around the Peak District, as organised by the Kinder 80 Committee.
