National Trust purchase Ogwen Cottage Outdoor Centre

The National Trust are now the owners of Ogwen Cottage Outdoor Centre, which has been sold by auction at Aston Villa FC.

This is a positive outcome for what is a very special centre with such close links to the history of British rock climbing and mountaineering and when told the news, Ron James, the founder of Ogwen Cottage, was obviously delighted with the outcome.

We wish the National Trust team who take over all good fortune in re-establishing Ogwen as a thriving centre providing real adventure to young people from all backgrounds.
