Preston Mountaineering Club was founded in 1933 by a group of lads from Preston and Blackburn who were extremely keen on climbing. They would cycle regularly to the Langdale and Coniston areas of the Lake District for a weekend on the rock.

Our Club has grown from these early days and now has a programme of climbing and mountaineering throughout the British Isles and abroad. With a membership of approximately 80, encompassing a wide age range from 18 upwards, we like to ensure an informal and friendly club atmosphere and all are welcome.

Our meets programme comprises regular weekend meets using climbing huts or campsites around the climbing and mountain areas of England, Scotland and Wales. On the meets, members enjoy taking part in the many different aspects of mountaineering: walking, scrambling, rock climbing and snow and ice climbing. We also have a mid-week rock climbing programme, which runs from Easter to September, covering many of the local quarries and crags within 30/45 minute drive from Preston. Club members also organise summer and winter trips to the Alps.

The Club also has a very active mid-week walking section who meet every last Thursday of the month.
