This group thought that it would be a good idea to have a base in the Lakes for their walking and climbing weekends and they began combing the dales for a suitable building. They found the roofless shell of a 400 year old farmhouse hidden away amongst the fells at the far end of Borrowdale and with considerable support from their employers, who later became K Shoes, they began the daunting task of rebuilding the house and barn. The restored building was opened in 1934 and a club was formed to maintain it and to enjoy walking and climbing in that magnificent location. High House is the second oldest climbing hut in the Lakes, the club is K Fellfarers, and today, over 75 years later, both still flourish....
