Richard Glover Contact Richard Glover

Richard Glover was introduced to Burnmoor Lodge in the early sixties. He has subsequently spent many hours on and under the roof, accompanied by Tilley lamps, attempting to keep the wet out. He has also helped convey various strange loads across the moors by day and night. His great desire is to see the Lodge gradually returned to a better state of repair and used to encourage young people to appreciate the beauty of creation.

Ian Ambrose

Safety Officer

Ian Ambrose Contact Ian Ambrose

If Gill hadn’t married me and Heather Jonathan I wouldn’t be doing this! As it is this family connection has provided me with the perfect walking and climbing bolt hole – just ask the children. My current objective is to ensure that the Lodge meets the relevant safety requirements to continue to give pleasure to our next generation of walkers, climbers and those who just love being there.
