JEFF FORD, lives in the Northern Fells of the Lake District. He is a collector of mountaineering literature and ephemera as well as being a keen cyclist and walker. He has completed four rounds of the 214 Lake District Wainwright fells and all the Nuttalls, namely the 446 mountains of England and Wales over 2000 feet. Further afield he was a member of the British Nanda Devi Expedition in 2000 – Nanda Devi Inner Sanctuary and 1936 base camp led by John Shipton in the footsteps of his father, Eric Shipton. Two years later he trekked to Kangchenjunga and again in 2005 trekked with George Band and others to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Joe Brown and George Band’s first ascent of the mountain. In 2003 he visited Peru on an expedition that re-discovered the lost Inca city of Llactapata that was first discovered by Hiram Bingham in 1913. He was chair of the Mountain Heritage Trust Board for four years until September 2018. Jeff now advises the Trust’s board from his wealth of knowledge and experience.
