Shrewsbury Mountaineering Club

The SMC is a long established group of friends with a love for the mountains and the outdoors. We currently have around 100 members of all ages and abilities. We meet every Tuesday evening, all year round, for a short and sociable walk around the Shropshire Hills ending with a visit to a local country pub.  The climbers also meet on Thursday evenings; outdoors in the summer and indoors in winter  or when the weather is bad.

We also organise day walks in nearby mountain areas every month and regularly throughout the year we visit our club hut in Snowdonia. We also have weekend or longer trips to our favourite destinations such as the Lake District, Scotland, the Alps and Spain to name a few. Check out our latest bi-monthly newsletter to find out more about the SMC and for taste of our activities check out our events calendar.

Roy BoyYou were the one who knew Ireland and Scotland, you were the one who knew the paths, you were the one who knew the pubs. You were the one who kept control when grown men became foolish,we laughed a lot. Then you were the one who said , it will all end in tears. Then you were the one who said, go on then lets have a pound whip and have one for the road, making 6 pints 12 30 am leaving the pub and a car load of idiots on their way back home to Shrewsbury, also work in a few hours.
High mountains,sea shores,country lanes, Tuesday nights, week ends and weeks away together, gallons of Guiness and plates full of food for a fiver.There were a lot of great times ,these times will never be forgotten,you will never be forgotten, we no longer look across the table, laugh and say come on let's go again, just one more for the road.
