The Grahams on the Web

Alan Dawson

December 2015

There is a long history of digital publication of the Grahams, dating back to the early stages of the list, which was distributed on PC disk, and the early days of the World Wide Web. In the 1990s the Grahams list was available via the Liverpool Mountain Database and the University of Glasgow website. In the late 1990s and 2000s it was available via the BUBL Information Service, based at the University of Strathclyde. By the end of 2015 there were at least seven websites offering a list of Grahams:

The Relative Hills of Britain (RHB)

The Database of British and Irish Hills (DoBIH)

Hill-bagging (the online version of DoBIH)

Caledonia Hilltreks

Scottish Hills forum

UK Prominent Peaks

Walkhighlands

With so many sites opting to publish the list of Grahams in some form, it is important for users of these sites to have the current version available, preferably with the official names, heights, sections and grid references. The official source of the Grahams is on the website run by the list author and maintainer: this RHB site. The data available on the hill-bagging site is also up to date and can be regarded as accurate and current.
