About Us


Durham Mountain Sports was founded by several of our current members who were previously members of other clubs and who decided that they would really prefer an outdoor pursuits club on their own doorstep. After a brief advertising campaign, they set the ball rolling in October 2003 with 22 members. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength, with membership now approaching 100.




We don't have permanent facilities, but we do have access to a private room in a friendly pub with a decent selection of beers!
