MHT at opening of Carlisle Archives Centre

MHT were involved in the celebrations to open the new Carlisle Archives Centre earlier today. Sir Chris Bonington, MHT trustee, officially opened the centre which benefitted from a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Children from Petteril Bank School were dressed as Edwardian mountaineers to reflect the age of Lady Gillford’s House which was renovated as part of the new facility.
