Book description

The Wainwright Memorial Walk is the 102-mile route through the Lake District that A. Wainwright – author, artist and fell-walker – set out to walk with three friends over the Whitsunday holiday of 1931. The route the friends took – recorded in sketch maps at the time – is highlighted on maps from the Pictorial Guides, accompanied by text from the guides and Wainwright’s other writings. Wainwright’s walk – originally planned to take six days – is here split into eleven manageable stages, to be taken either as independent one-day walks or as a whole.

The route starts in Windermere and ends in Ambleside and on the way it takes the walker within sight of every lake, every valley and every mountain in the Lake District.
