Welcome to the Mountain Heritage Trust

The Mountain Heritage Trust seeks to identify and collect material which documents Britain’s vibrant climbing and mountaineering history. This site is continually evolving as we acquire new collections and expand our online exhibitions.

Latest news:

The Mountain Heritage Trust is on the move! We are delighted to announce that in early 2017 we will begin the move a new office and collections store at the Blencathra Centre near Keswick. Find out more here.

Update January 2017: We are now in the process of moving so unfortunately will not be able to accommodate researchers and are only offering a very basic enquiries service. We hope to have our research and enquiries service running again by the end of March – an update will be posted if there is any change to this date.

Latest exhibitions:

Savage Arena: The Legacy of Joe Tasker
At Keswick Museum and Art Gallery until May 2017, check out our online exhibition here.
