New home for the Mountain Heritage Trust at Blencathra Centre

On Friday 24th March the Field Studies Council officially welcomed the Mountain Heritage Trust to a new base at the Blencathra Centre. The launch featured speeches from Mountaineer Doug Scott CBE, Professor Tim Burt (President, Field Studies Council), Tim Foster (Head of Blencathra Centre), Nick Colton (Deputy CEO, British Mountaineering Council), and Jeff Ford (Chair, Mountain Heritage Trust). Phil Houghton, Cumbrian poet, read a specially commissioned poem for the opening. Chair of the Mountain Heritage Trust Trustees – Jeff Ford says, “It is a relief to be able to put such a valuable set of items into wonderful new premises at Blencathra. This will mean that many more people will be able to access the documents, photos, films and objects. We hope to see many people visiting the collection in the future.” Head of Blencathra Field Studies Centre, Tim Foster says “The most natural place in Britain to locate the MHT collections are with us on the slopes of the much loved Blencathra. Many of the students taking part in activities here will be able to look at the items, which they were not able to do when it was in Penrith. We are delighted to have them with us”.
