Welcome

It’s student season at the BMC. In the coming months we’ll be posting lots of content on a wide range of topics to help students get the most out of climbing and walking. We will also be launching a survey to find out more about what 14-25 year olds want from the BMC.

A big thanks to all who signed our Stand up for Stanage online petition. The Peak District National Park Authority has decided to retain ownership and management of the estate, and we have subsequently met with senior Peak Park officials to discuss future management plans.
