Britain's Mountaineering Legacy
Britain has a rich mountaineering history, with MHT holding a crucial part of this significant heritage.
The Trust houses collections from rock-climbing growth in the 20th century to climbing wall developments.
Preservation and Growth
MHT actively curates and showcases this heritage and targets specific collections to grow its archive.
Donations fund a full-time archivist to manage and catalog the collections.
Future aspirations include employing more staff to expand cataloging as the archive grows.
Donations also train both staff and volunteers, enhancing their skills and knowledge.
Volunteer at MHT
MHT welcomes those who can work alongside the archivist at the office.
Volunteers are needed to spread awareness of MHT's work at events, especially among climbers.
Engage at Climbing Venues
Advocacy at climbing walls and through clubs is vital for MHT's reach and influence.
As a dedicated team, we are committed to safeguarding the stories, traditions, and legacies woven into these rugged landscapes.
