A hike through the history of hostelling.

Something’s afoot at Pearling Manor and it isn’t just the walkers.

The beautiful hostel, rich in YHA history, is lovely but falling apart. External forces are out to grab and turn it into a golf club.

Cue Connie, first ever warden, with a heart as big as her rucksack. She takes us on a journey through the YHA’s past in the hope of securing its future.

“Through thickets and thin we’ve managed to keep,
“Our promise of somewhere cheap to sleep,
“If that’s threatened we must defend it,
“Looking to the past in order to transcend it.”

With harmonies, hills and humour, join Mikron on a hike through the history of hostelling.
