Alongside the FRCC historic collection of around 2,500 books on mountaineering and rock climbing the Armitt Museum, Ambleside has custody of significant artifacts from the club’s collected archives. This collection is intended to compliment the library and contextualize the written archive.

We work alongside the Armitt to highlight areas of the collection and reach new audiences through regular displays, special exhibitions and community projects.

 

 

 

 


The Armitt has a legacy stretching back over a hundred years and is central to cultural life in the South Lakes and beyond, both in terms of local history and the development of culture and the arts.
