Saturday 27th & 28th. Peak & Northern Footpath Society are hosting, with our support and other local organisations, an event to celebrate the permanent opening of the Snake Path from Hayfield to the Snake Pass Inn. The ceremony and celebrations will be held throughout the day on Saturday 27 May at the Royal Hotel in Hayfield. The purpose of these celebrations is to commemorate the 120th anniversary of the Society’s first success after its founding in 1894, to ensure that the Snake Path would remain open for future generations of walkers. 2017 is also the 85th anniversary of the 1932 Mass Trespass, making this a particularly significant anniversary for Hayfield and its role in the long history of campaigning for access to our countryside.

On Sunday 28 May, they are planning a choice of two walks along the Snake Path: one short, with no significant ups or downs; the other walking the full length of the route with return transport planned for both of these.
