Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells – The Southern Fells

Book Four, Readers Edition

Alfred Wainwright


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

The Southern Fells include the highest, roughest, grandest fells in Lakeland including the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. Wainwright – a fell-walking legend in his own lifetime – knew the terrain and conveyed its grandeur and beauty like nobody else. In this unique Pictorial Guide, he writes of the glorious curves and simple grandeur of Great Langdale; of Wasdale, ‘an emerald amongst sombre hills’; of enchanting Borrowdale; of the sparkling radiance of the Duddon; and of the most delectable valley of all – Eskdale, ‘sanctuary of peace and solitude’. 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.
