Kinder Mountain Rescue Team (KMRT) has been in existence since 1971, and is one of seven mountain rescue teams that operate within the Peak District National Park, as part of the Peak District Mountain Rescue Organisation (PDMRO).

Our 50 members operate on an purely voluntary basis and are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to assist members of the public on the hill or in urban search and rescue situations.

We are almost exclusively funded by public donations, and all proceeds from fund raising go towards equipment and resources used on our call outs.

26:CALLOUT – 12 JUNE 2022

A lady had been on an organised walk when she suffered an injury to her foot.  She had already walked an impressive distance throughout the day and she now found herself at the top of the Ashop Head steps on the top of Kinder and unable to continue walking.  As it would be a significant distance down from this location they called for the team’s assistance.

As she could no longer walk down, she was packaged in our Mountain Rescue stretcher and carried off the hill.  The route down the Ashop Head steps is steep and difficult, so we sledged the stretcher down the grassy slope by the side of the steps using a confidence line as backup.  From there we attached our wheel to the stretcher and carried off down the paved path to Monks Road.
