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.
MHT are thrilled to announce the forthcoming availability of a new exhibition space for displaying items from our mountain heritage collections within Keswick Museum. Following confirmation from the Heritage Lottery Fund of their support of the Enhancement Project for Keswick Museum, building work will commence later this year ensuring an opening of the refurbished Museum next summer. A full press release is available here.
In the meantime, MHT will be exhibiting some of its collections at the museum during the Keswick Mountain Festival 16-20th May
