Welcome to the Mountain Heritage Trust

An overview of our work follows the showreel of ReelTime Adventure, our main media partner

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

To highlight the 90th anniversary of the 1922 Mount Everest Expedition, we are delighted to showcase the photograph album compiled by Arthur Wakefield, one of the expedition members, reproduced by kind permission of the Wakefield Family. Furthermore, Kenton Cool has successfully taken the Wakefield Olympic gold medal to the top of Everest and fulfilled an historic promise. Further information on this wonderful achievement is available here.
