“The Winter Hill rights of way battle of 1896 was Britain’s biggest mass trespass. Over three successive weekends thousands of Bolton people marched over Winter Hill to reclaim a right of way they said had been illegally blocked by the landowner. Although the 1932 Kinder Scout trespass is rightly celebrated, the events of 1896 lay forgotten for many years.” Big Issue North.
