About Mountain Heritage Trust

From the first rock climbs on Napes Needle, to daring first ascents in the Greater Ranges, and incredible feats of competitive athleticism; our archive of films, images, books and artefacts echoes with some of Britain’s most iconic achievements and its boldest personalities. 

Now though we’re looking to the future, and asking what stories might lie amidst the crags and climbing gyms up and down the country. We all have own our mountain history, and in 2019 we're telling those inspiring stories from our incredible community.
