The 2012 BMC AGM Weekend is at Malham, from Friday 27th to Sunday 29th April. Come and join us in the Yorkshire Dales for a weekend of walking, climbing and socialising.

The weekend’s activities will be based at the Malham Tarn Field Studies Centre, which occupies a large Georgian country house, leased from the National Trust.  It is the focus of an internationally important National Nature Reserve and the Tarn itself is one of only eight upland alkaline lakes in Europe.

The morning is free for walking and climbing after a hearty breakfast.  
 
Within walking distance of the Centre are famous limestone features including Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and spectacular karst landscapes.  The route of the Pennine Way footpath runs very close to the centre.  Nearby habitats include limestone pavement, grassland, woodland and species-rich fen, acid peat pools and stony hill streams.
