Alfred Wainwright’s seven pictorial guidebooks listing 214 Lake District fells

Between 1952 and 1965 Alfred Wainwright spent his evenings and weekends creating an “illustrated account of a study and exploration of the mountains in the English Lake District”. The 214 Lakeland fells are described and illustrated in remarkable detail and the seven books can be purchased individually or as a box set.

Surely there is no other place in this whole wonderful world quite like Lakeland … no other so exquisitely lovely, no other so charming, no other that calls so insistently across a gulf of distance. All who truly love Lakeland are exiles when away from it.
