LAKE DISTRICT // WAINWRIGHTS

“The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent, but the hills are eternal. Always there will be the lonely ridge, the dancing beck, the silent forest; always there will be the exhilaration of the summits. These are for the seeking, and those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body.” ― Alfred WainwrightThe Western Fells

A Wainwright refers to one of 214 fells in the Lake District named after Alfred Wainwright. Wainwright was a fell walker and author of a seven-volume pictorial guide to the Lakeland Fells, published between 1955-1966, which became the definitive guidebooks to walking the Lake District Mountains and are still considered classics to this day. Each of the books describes each of the fells and the area which surrounds it, with plenty of helpful information and beautiful hand-drawn pictures. He has helped and inspired many walkers for the past forty years, and he was awarded an MBE for it.

Over the next 12 months, I plan on completing and bagging all 214 Wainwrights as I complete each one I will add the blog posts to the Wainwright below.
