Pat Kelly and the Pinnacle Club

Highways and Byways in North Wales by A. G. Bradley (published 1898), is one of the antiquarian books gifted to the University by the Pinnacle Club. This gift compliments two other collections: the Climbing Club Collection and the archive of Dr Anthony Stewart Gervais Jones which have also been donated to the University. However, what makes this edition of Highways and Byways in North Wales of particular interest is the handwritten inscription on the front page: To The Pinnacle Club, For Pat (HMK), 1936 This inscription relates to Emily Kelly, or Pat as she was known to everyone, the founder of the Pinnacle Club and has been written by her husband: Harry Mills Kelly (HMK).
