Benny Rothman

A Fighter For The Right To Roam, Workers' Rights And Socialism

 

Benny Rothman is, of course, best known for the major part he played in the historic mass trespass over Kinder Scout in April 1932. It is universally accepted that this paved the way for the 1949 National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act and ultimately the “Right to Roam” Countryside and Rights of Way Act of 2000.
