Cwm Eigiau hut - 50th Anniversary

29th April 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Rugby MC hut at Cwm Eigiau, Conwy Valley. To mark this special occasion we are having a meet at the hut on the anniversary, with a celebratory dinner and hopefully some walking and climbing thrown in.

The hut has claims to be the oldest mountaineering hut in Great Britain, being opened by the Rucksack Club in 1912, but has not had continuous use over that period, falling into disrepair in the 1920s. You can read about the history of the hut in the links below. You can also read a history of club and hut development in the UK here
