by Mick Ryan Several people have pledged money if the BMC decide to purchase Wilton Quarries off United Utilities. The latest is a whopping £2,000. peterjb wrote: “I often go to the Pugh and Co. auctions and was surprised to see the Wiltons popping up on the latest catalogue which I have only just looked at.I am pleased to see something has already been done about it, good old UKClimbing.com and BMC, here the true value as a resource for all climbers shines through. I may have bidded on them and will be happy to contribute a couple of k to a purchase fund, asuming the ownership and management issues etc are clearly laid out and addressed.” You can see who has pledged at this thread, www.ukclimbing.com/forums The message to the BMC is clear. Climbers are willing to dig in their pockets for worthwhile major access and acquisition projects.
