||Mountain Heritage Trust|
|General statement about the institution:
||The Trust, a registered charity, was formed in March 2000 in response to an appeal a member of the BMC, to establish a body which would ensure the long-term preservation of Britain’s mountain heritage.
The Mountain Heritage Trust is the only organisation of its kind in the UK. Its key role is to ensure that Britain’s unique and fascinating heritage, artefacts, history, traditions and records of the people connected with its mountainous areas are conserved, documented, made accessible and, most importantly, communicated to as wide an audience as possible.
|Mountain Heritage collections:
||The MHT collection is comprised of 22 archive collections, 450+ artefacts (predominantly climbing equipment), photographs, posters, paintings, maps, ephemera, journals and books.|
