Wainwright Collection

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 wish to extend their congratulations to the Cumbria Archives Service for securing an HLF grant to fund the purchase and future preservation of the papers of Alfred Wainwright.  MHT will be working with CAS and other partners including Kendal Museum, Lake District Visitor Centre, Brewery Arts Centre, the Wainwright Society and the Wordsworth Trust to develop a range of activities associated with this significant collection.
