The Joe Brown Shops (Est 1966) and The Climbers Shop (Est 1959)

With over 100 years of retail heritage our shops are incredibly proud to offer a huge choice of clothing and equipment for climbers, mountaineers, hillwalkers and trail runners. Our story was begun by pioneers back in the days when hemp ropes were all the rage. Today, our team are equally passionate about sharing their experience of the products we stock so you don’t have to experience the hard lessons they have already learned.

Dear Customers,

With the increased danger of coronavirus (COVID-19), The Climbers Shop and Joe Brown have implemented further measures to help protect our community and our staff members.


In line with Government advice all our shops are now temporarily closed, we will review this situation in the coming weeks and re-open when it is safe to do so.


Continuing to run the online store would mean putting our staff at risk. We have therefore decided to temporarily close the shop and online store until further notice.


Green = Open as normal.

Amber = Operating with reduced staffing, will be closed for 2 hours between 12-2pm each day. Please be aware, it may be necessary to control access to areas of the shop.

Red = Unable to open.

Climbers Shop – Ambleside

Climbers Shop – Stony Stratford
