New book on Peak District Climbing

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.

Details of a forthcoming volume on the history of climbing in the Peak District has been unveiled.  Drawing on the paper and audio archives of Giles Barker held within MHT Collections, Phil Kelly and his team are finishing what Giles started before his untimely death in a caving accident in 1992.
