A Pennine Journey

The story of a long walk in 1938

Alfred Wainwright


“A Pennine Journey” is the fascinating story of a solitary walk through the Pennines made by A. Wainwright – legendary fell-walker, artist and author of the “Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells” – in September, 1938. With the world on the brink of war, Wainwright found solace in the desolate moors and the song of larks high above the tranquil landscape.

His account – first published fifty years later – is full of a young man’s dreams and his thoughts on life and love.

The first book to be published by The Wainwright Society – this once out-of-print book is available again!

Considered by many to be AW’s finest work this new edition includes additional material produced by Wainwright at the time it was written in 1938.
