Mick Burke Collection

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.

The latest collection to be added to those already held by MHT is that of Mick Burke, noted alpinist and film cameraman who sadly disappeared in a storm on Mount Everest in 1975.  The collection comprises slides (and an index to same), photographs, route notes and a diary of the Annapurna South Face Expedition from 1970 which has brief, but telling entries. Thanks to John and Beth Bevan and Sara Burke for this generous donation.
