Tom Avery Lecture: The 3000 ft Mountains of Britain

Britain is blessed with an incredibly diverse landscape, much of it mountainous, resulting a glorious total of 529 peaks over the height of 3000 ft. Over October half term Simon Young aims to have summited all of them , when he reaches the top of Carn Dearg (941m/3087 ft) near Loch Ossian in the Central Highlands of Scotland.

This Tom Avery lecture will tell the story of how they were all climbed, as well as giving an overview of Britain’s upland landscape, its History, Geology and Wildlife. The talk should be of interest to anyone interested in hill walking, mountaineering and climbing or who would just like to enjoy some landscape photography while listening to tales of glorious views, cheese sandwiches, no views, midges, bogs, haunted hills and sore feet.

Tickets are free of charge, but it is hoped to raise funds for the John Muir Trust and Mind over Mountains – two great charities which reflect, in very different ways, the importance of mountains in our lives.  If you would like to make a donation the fundraising link is:
