As part of it’s on-going development, the Mountain Heritage Trust is pleased to announce it has secured almost £50,000 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The project is designed to examine the Trust's current position and consider its role for the future, including how it can raise awareness of this nationally important collection and make it accessible to a wider range of people.
Kenton Cool’s expedition to Mount Everest later this year with the 1922 Olympic medal awarded to Dr Arthur Wakefield highlights the huge value of mountain heritage. It also sees Kenton honouring a promise originally made by Deputy Leader Lt Colonel Strutt to take a gold medal to the summit of Mount Everest ninety years ago.
