Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells

Book One, Eastern Fells,Readers Edition

Alfred Wainwright


This is the original Pictorial Guide to the Eastern Fells of Lakeland freshly reproduced from Wainwright’s original pages.

The Eastern Fells include the greatest single concentrated mass of high ground in Lakeland: a tremendous barrier running north and south, high and steep all along its length, rising to above 3000 feet on Helvellyn – the most-often climbed mountain in the Lake District. Popular resorts such as Ambleside and Grasmere lie in this sector of the fells, as does the beautiful Patterdale valley (the best base, in Wainwright’s view, for exploring the area). The Pictorial Guides by A. Wainwright have been treasured by generations of walkers and are as enchanting and relevant now as when they were written, sixty years ago.
