Product description


A. Wainwright for the 21st century with all the style but none of
the inaccuracies which had crept in as paths changed since Wainwright
walked them. -- Cumbria, November 2006

Something's happened to the late AW's classic guidebooks!...The
updating makes them, once again, contemporary guides.
-- TGO - The Great Outdoors, January 2007

This new edition retains all the charm of the original editions,
but it is accessible and appealing in equal measure to a new generation of
walkers. --The Sunday Telegraph, 15th October 2006


A. Wainwright's legendary "Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells" have been best-sellers for the past fifty years. Now, for the first time, a thorough programme of revision and updating, authorised by the Wainwright Estate, has begun. Each volume of the "Pictorial Guides" will be reissued with maps and text revised to take account of the many changes to footpaths and terrain since Wainwright himself walked the fells. Key features include: all maps and ascent diagrams are checked and updated, paths and route indicators are picked out in red for greater clarity, instructions on ascents and ridge routes are revised and updated, and drawings and page layouts remain faithful, wherever possible, to Wainwright's originals.
