Alfred Wainwright

Alfred Wainwright was born in January 1907 and  died in January 1991. After a holiday in the Lake District in 1930 at the age of 23, his life was then devoted to the discovering and sharing of beautiful Lakeland walks. His now infamous pictorial guides to the Lakeland fells cover the Lake District’s greatest peaks in tremendous detail. There are 214 hills in total and numerous Wainwright walks are recorded through his classic illustrations and detailed text.
