The Club is affiliated to the British Mountaineering Council, and any persons who are listed as Members on the Club Membership list are insured for liability claims made by third parties for any Club activities.

As mountain activities are potentially hazardous, members are strongly recommended to make their own insurance arrangements for personal accident and medical expenses; individual membership of the BMC provides this cover.


There is no insurance provided for members’ personal possessions.  Members are advised to cover these under household insurances for journeys away from home.


The responsibility for insuring motor vehicles lies with the owners and drivers. Members must be aware that the law requires unlimited third party cover on your car or minibus.
