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 at last, they are being thoroughly revised and updated, with the blessing of the Wainwright Estate. Revised editions of each volume of the "Pictorial Guides" will appear over the next three years: all maps and ascent diagrams updated; paths and route indicators picked out in red for greater clarity; instructions on ascents and ridge routes revised; and, drawings and page layouts with the charm and originality of Wainwright's originals. "The Southern Fells" includes the highest, roughest, grandest fells in Lakeland. Wainwright writes of the 'glorious curves' and 'simple grandeur' of Great Langdale; of Wasdale, 'an emerald amongst sombre hills'; of 'enchanting Borrowdale; of the 'sparkling radiance' of the Duddon; and of the most delectable valley of all - Eskdale, 'sanctuary of peace and solitude'.
