Subtitle A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells

Alfred Wainwright
Price £14.99
Description Description
The North Western Fells are bounded by the River Derwent and the River Cocker – an area lauded by Wainwright as first-class fell-walking territory. The ridge walking here is some of the finest in the Lake District, offering views of unsurpassed beauty. There is something for all walkers: steep, high mountains such as Grasmoor, rugged individualists such as Castle Crag, and destinations such as Catbells, which Wainwright calls 'a family fell where grandmothers and infants can climb the heights together, a place beloved'. This is the original Pictorial Guide to the North Western Fells of Lakeland, freshly reproduced from Wainwright's original pages. These popular Pictorial Guides have been treasured by generations of walkers and are as enchanting and inspiring now as when they were written, half a century ago.
