City Grammar School - THEN and NOW Pages

Alan Evans

I had a mixed career since I left CGS, first working for the SMRE in Sheffield as a lab technician. Eventually, via Blackpool School of Photography, I eventually migrated to Granada Television, where I worked as a cameraman for over 30 years. It was a good well paid job that got me all around the world, literally watching history being made on occaisions. Then they made me a manager and I retired.
At school I started climbing with Pete Scott and climbing has been my passion ever since, with a fair amount of success in the Alps and Himalayas as well as hundreds of first ascents in the UK.
I am now living in Spain, still climbing and doing new routes, mainly on my own personal mountain, Segaria, which is virtually in my back yard.
I was at CGS from 1960 to 1965, If any of the old crowd want to get in touch, e-mail me.
