Raven’s Pit

On Friday the 25th of July, The National Trust and Mountain Heritage Trust invite you to Raven’s Pit, a night of fire, ale and tall tales of climbing heritage at the Sticklebarn, Langdale. Stoking the fire will be the infamous Lakeland stalwarts Dave Birkett, James McHaffie, and Adam Hocking, compered by a sorry southerner, Andy Kirkpatrick.

The evening will start with music at the fire pit from 8pm, before the Langdale tales begin at 9, followed by a short, sharp quiz on Lakeland rock. The night is free, just turn up, drink and heckle where inappropriate.

We are keen to take contributions of questions for the quiz, no matter how subversive and we also need to collect images of Langdale climbing through the decades, of any quality.

This event launches a partnership between the National Trust and Mountain Heritage Trust which aims to highlight the richness of our climbing history and culture and its great stories through a dynamic series of ‘live heritage’ events at the Sticklebarn.
