The Membership of the Pegasus Club, Nottingham.

1952 - 2023

According to legend, everywhere that Pegasus the winged horse struck with its hoof inspiration burst forth. He galloped over land and sea and his energy and curiosity knew no bounds.
When the founder members in 1950’s unanimously decided to name their newly formed club after the famous winged horse they did so, as club rumour has it, after seeing a logo on a cigarette packet!
Thus the new Pegasus myth began with the creation of a walking and mountaineering club that like the Pegasus of legend had energy and curiosity in abundance and a general feeling of optimism.

The 1950’s was a decade of tremendous change. It was a period of increased affluence after WW2 and a new era was emerging where women and men like our founder members could look forward to climbing and caving experiences that had previously been in the realms of a few. That is not to say it was easy. It is worth remembering that a trip to Derbyshire or anywhere else in Britain often assumed the status of an expedition, as transport, equipment and accommodation had to be considered using only public transport. The early club members were really leading the way when they organised their first club holiday in Austria and Italy.

A new era was emerging in the mid 1960’s when the Pegasus Club underwent a Renaissance with an influx of very keen and driven climbing and caving enthusiasts of no mean talent. These members formed a very solid and safe platform from which to branch out and as their “escapades” became known this in turn attracted more people of like mind in years to follow. Some of the 1960’s crowd are still extremely active while others maintain a special social interest still.

As caving gear was bulky and shared by the members, the Pegasus acquired a workmen’s hut in Peak Forest in Derbyshire in which to store it and rented a cottage in Dudwood Lane near Matlock. This meant that there was always somewhere to stay cheaply and eliminated the need to do a trip all in one day. The liberty to stay out for a whole weekend was also a draw to visiting clubs and new members. Many new friendships were forged at the Peak Forest hut which have endured to this day. The hut is no more. Dudwood Cottage is a mansion!


During its 70 odd year journey the Pegasus Club has had many associate members from Britain and abroad. 
Inevitably a few have died but are remembered fondly.

We feel that there must be a section acknowledging associates who are people and characters who caved, climbed and mountaineered with the club and were often on the scene but never actually joined. They have added much to the ethos of the Pegasus Club.
