The Mountain Heritage Trust’s new expanded team is ready and willing!

The legacy of our past mountaineering feats, testing human endurance and discovering routes hitherto unclimbed, demonstrates why these legacies need preserving.

It provides both an important history and a source of inspiration for the climbers of today. The Mountain Heritage Trust has just recruited eight new trustees to the board who bring a huge range of talents and skills to the team.

The current Trustees, Patrons and staff met some of the new Trustees in June to set up plans for moving the Trust forward.  Keep an eye on the MHT website for future projects and events.
