Wainwright's Lake District Walks
Alfred Wainwright's guides to walks around the Lake District hills continue to be favourites even after upwards of half a century. Reprints from the 1950s editions continue to be purchased for the bookcase in spite of being somewhat out-of-date. It is important, however, not to overlook the fact that landscape alters as time passes. The Lake District hills might all still be there yet details of pathways, fencing, farms, and so on, do alter. Both initial edition reprints and also revised editions are included on this site, along with biographical volumes and others of Alfred Wainwright's numerous writings.
