Peck Climbing Equipment goes on display

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.

Thanks to a recent donation from Derek Gamble Managing Director of Peck Climbing Equipment, a variety of items including crackers, chocks, peg-pitons, bandoliers and the noted MacInnes Terrordactyl is currently on display at Charlotte Mason Library, University of Cumbria, Ambleside.  Excerpts from the catalogue of 1968 provide detailed information on the development of these items for which John Cleare supplied the photographs. A snapshot of the display is available here.
