Welcome

Thanks to your generosity, Mend Our Mountains reached its £100k target, making it the most successful crowdfunding appeal for mountain paths ever. So we’ve decided to keep it running.

June marks the meteorological start to summer, and we’re looking forward to a wonderful weekend of adventure and fun at this weekend's BMC festival in Cornwall. Come and join us.
