25th Anniversary Year (now migrated)

AW edit, February 2017: This page has now been removed as a main menu item. All details have been migrated to the 2013-14 trip book page here. A 30th Anniversary Year page will follow at some point in mid-late 2017 or early 2018.

Final update (4 October 2014)

With the start of a new academic year, CUHWC's Twenty-fifth Anniversary Year draws to a close. We hope everyone who participated in any of the events enjoyed themselves and the hills with friends old and new. The event pages will now be left in a (more or less) final state to provide a record of the year - and to provide the 30th Anniversary committee with some ideas! See you again in 2019.


In 2014, Cambridge University Hillwalking Club celebrated twenty-five years with its silver anniversary. Members of the club in its early days (and those who have read about how it all started) will know that it came into being rather gradually, and so, rather than pinpoint a specific birthday, we decided to spread the celebrations over an entire academic year, running from October 2013 to September 2014. The main event, as in previous anniversary years, was a black-tie dinner and weekend in the Lake District, in February 2014.

This page and those linked from it are intended to serve as a source of information about the events organised, a starting point for both current members and duffers to get involved in numerous ways, and a place to follow events and share photos as they happened and afterwards. Please take a look around!

Best wishes,

Dave Farrow, Jo Smith and Michael Fordham
The Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Year team
