Jarvis on Kinder Scout

“We came out on a school trip which no-one particularly wanted to go on. Everyone wanted to stay at home and watch TV instead of heading out on a minibus into the middle of nowhere. 
But I fell in love with the place. We went orienteering, and I found it fascinating to be up there with just a map and a compass to make sure that you didn’t end up getting lost completely. 

Forty years on, I still find Kinder Scout is somewhere I can come and never get bored of.”

Jarvis Cocker on his love for Kinder Scout.
