About Alfred Wainwright

Alfred Wainwright is widely known for his A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells book series. This 13-year project began in 1952 and comprised seven detailed books on 214 fells in the Lake District. They are all handwritten and contain no printer’s type. Decades later, they are still considered the definitive guides to the Lakeland fells. Wainwright would continue producing over 50 more books and cement himself as a Lakeland legend.
