The Tricouni Club is a small family-orientated climbing and walking club whose members
do not come from any one geographical area of the U.K. Therefore, although the
membership requirements are by no means exacting, the process for membership is usually
by introduction and personal recommendation by one or more existing members, followed
by a mutual trial period where the aspiring applicant attends a few Club Meets. Notwithstanding,
the Club wishes to attract new members and if you feel you might like to join but
don’t know any of the current members, it may be possible to join an Easter or October
meet if there is space available in Seatoller House. However, please contact the
Club Secretary before trying to book as space is finite and Club members, then their
guests, have priority at these times. Another option, if the House is full, would
be to stay in alternative accommodation within the Valley, or even to camp at the
nearby campsite, just as Club members have done from time to time over the years.
N.B. This Tricouni Club is the genuine and original one with a continuous line of
membership since the CHA days in 1929 and has no connection with one based in Derbyshire,
giving itself the same name. A number of the present members are sons, daughters
and grandchildren of some of the original founders. We still retain the original
handwritten minutes from both the founding meeting of the CHA M.C. and the first
meeting where it was reconstituted as the Tricouni Club. We even have J.E.B. Wright’s
original handwritten assesments of the climbing abilities of those early members.
This site and its contents remain the property of the Tricouni Club detailed on the
site, with the exception of the photographs which strictly remain the intellectual
property of the individual original owners or their heirs and successors. You may
link to the site, but you may not copy it or publish an altered or edited version
of it. If you wish to use any of the photographs you must seek and obtain permission
first, which you may do via the archivist. It is probable that any non-commercial
requests will be treated sympathetically.
For practical reasons the photographs published on this site are necessarily reproduced
at reduced size and resolution. Notwithstanding anything contained in the paragraph
above, Tricouni Club members can request, F.O.C., from the archivist digital copies
of any of the photographs, (or scans of Club documents), at the original camera /
scan size and resolution if they wish to produce prints at the highest available
quality. These can be sent to your email address or, if preferred, posted on CD-ROM.
