Beautifully illustrated, this guide tells us all about the 214 Wainwrights of the Lake District. Don’t mistake Alfred Wainwright as an old fuddy-duddy, these books show his witty and cynical side. As well as being very informative, more than any Lakeland guide before it, these books are really quite funny and I believe essential in getting to know the mountains character and make-up when you’re walking the Wainwrights.

The detailed maps that AW drew during his evenings at home show routes and features along the ascents to each of these fells and although today we don’t use them to navigate the fells they are fantastic for a reference, sat on the sofa with a cup of tea.

Please Note: The Pictorial Guide is no longer printed as a box set. That is, you don’t get the box. I might have one printed myself one day but when you order the full set there will be no box!
