Roger Payne (1956-2012)

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.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Roger Payne who was killed in the avalanche on Mont Maudit on 12th July will be held at Manchester Town Hall on Saturday 8th September. The event will start at 6.30pm and is generously supported by the British Mountaineering Council.  Further information and directions are available here.

Our condolences go to Julie-Ann and his very many friends in the world of climbing and mountaineering.
