The BMC AGM takes place later this month in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Join us for a weekend of outdoor activity and socialising. If you can't attend, you can still have your say by using the proxy voting form.

The 1932 Mass Trespass on Kinder Scout had a far-reaching impact on access to the countryside. The 80th anniversary of the trespass will be celebrated with a series of events, including walks, talks, and exhibitions.
