Mountain Heritage Trust now has some amazing new content on their website, including their new showreels.

These include:

  • Recording of first ascents e.g. James McHaffie on The Meltdown.
  • Re-enacting historic first ascents e.g. Bentley Beetham on Trod Tethera, Walter Parry Haskett-Smith on Napes Needle
  • Relationship with other collections e.g. Keswick Museum, Reinhold Messner Mountain Museums, Zermatt Museum.
  • Reclaiming archive footage  e.g Ray McHaffie on Little Chamonix in boxing gloves and rolling skates, plus Abraham brothers film footage on Napes Needle, 1920.
  • Recording first-person accounts e.g. Doug Scott, Jim Curran, Johnny Dawes.
  • Receiving loans and donations e.g. Wasdale Abraham Collection, Siegfried Herford Papers.
