50 years of High Moss May

High Moss at 50. May 18/19/20th 2018.  Jean and Andy Llewellyn

High Moss was officially opened by Frank Kiernan on the 18th of May 1968. So fifty years to the day will be Friday 18th May 2018.
We therefore intend arriving at High Moss earlier that week so that celebrations can commence on the Friday. Hopefully the weather will be kind and a couple of good walks are planned for the Friday and Saturday and also climbing on the local crags, or of course just come along and do what you please.
There are already a good number booked on the meet (quite a lot of camper vans) so there is still room within the hut. Or for a quite night camping could be a good idea!
Food will be provided for the Saturday evening celebrations, but please bring your own booze or other refreshments.
It would also be good to have a display of pictures from ‘down the years’ particularly from the early days of the hut or other notable events. So please bring along on the day or ideally send copies in advance.
To ensure we have enough provisions please email Jean (see handbook for contact details) by the previous Monday evening 14th May.

  1. Mary and I are booked in for the meet, and at Turner Hall Farm campsite for Thursday, Fri, Sat. Seemed a good idea as it’s handy, has good facilities, and will be appreciated by Anthony and Hillary our good neighbours at the farm. Regarding High Moss history, l pulled together photos and comment on the excavation by Granville and his team of the hole for the outside water tank and the later construction of the Hobbit House. They are in a ring binder at H.M.
    In 1977, l organised a club walk from H.M to Edale to celebrate the club’s Jubilee. I intend to copy reports and details of the route and add this to the above folder for your anyone interested.
