Access Points

This site allows the user to search the catalogue of artefacts, archive collections and other materials held by MHT and to search its database which lists known mountain heritage resources held in public or private domains. These resources work in tandem.

There are also biographical details available for some climbers and mountaineers. This data has kindly been supplied by Colin Wells. Portrait images have been linked where possible. Copyright ownership of these images is not known in many cases.

Users should be aware that the database is not a fully comprehensive record of all mountain heritage resources – although this is the long term aim. MHT is only able to list details of those items which have come to its attention. If you know of other material or copyright information on portrait images which should be added to this database, then please contact the archivist on 07709 135285 or via
