‘Days of Sun and Rain: the Sheffield Clarion Ramblers during the 1920s and 1930s’.
Using the journals and photographs of a Sheffield walker, George Willis Marshall, local history writer Ann Beedham provides an insight into the world of rambling in Derbyshire, with its shades of social activism, during the 1920s and 1930s. The Clarion Rambling Club campaigned for the rights of access of ordinary people to moorland areas of the Peaks, a movement which culminated in the historic 1932 Mass trespass of Kinder Scout.
