Night Climbers of Cambridge

We can order this from our supplier
The Night Climbers of Cambridge was first published in 1937 under the pseudonym of Whipplesmith (now known to be Noel Howard Symington) and recounts the courageous, foolhardy nocturnal exploits of a group of Cambridge students who climbed the ancient university and town buildings in the city.

The exploits, up and atop the likes of the Fitzwilliam museum and the venerable King’s College Chapel, were recorded with ancient photographic paraphernalia, hauled over battlements and down drain-pipes, whilst the students somehow endeavoured to avoid detection by the ‘minions of authority.

Long before the present day’s much followed trend of urban climbing or ‘buildering’, Cambridge students of the 30’s continued an already established tradition and The Night Climbers of Cambridge is testament to their adrenalin packed, humorous and intriguing exploits.
