Product Description

Unfortunately, because of the high cost of postage, it is only available to UK customers.

Following the completion of his seven-volume Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells, Alfred Wainwright decided to cater for those walkers who, because of age or infirmity, must be content with milder expeditions on lesser fells. This book describes 56 of the foothills of Lakeland excluded from the earlier Pictorial Guides but within the National Park boundary.

The book was first published in 1974, a comprehensive programme of revision and updating the guides was completed in 2011. The revisions were undertaken by Chris Jesty, who had assisted Wainwright with the maps on two of his large-format books. Every map, every diagram and every word of text was checked. As a result of that review, Wainwright’s original maps, diagrams descriptions and route suggestions were, where necessary, corrected. Altitudes and place names were updated where appropriate, and information added on parking places near the start of ascents. To make the books easier to use, paths and route indicators were picked out in a second colour.

The publication of this edition of The Outlying Fells of Lakeland coincided with the 90th Anniversary of Alfred Wainwright’s first visit to the Lake District, in June 1930. NB This is the Second Impression of the Society publication (the book itself being Chris Jesty's Second Edition).

The book is Hard Cover and contains 296 pages of text and is thread sewn with cover (foil blocked on front and spine) and a dust jacket. Text page size is 170 x 112 mm.

Great that this is back in print

A great book for those times when you’re not bothered about gaining the height but want to get to the top of a fell.

As always with Striding Edge, well packaged and arrived quickly. These books and their dvds keep you in touch with the fells whilst we can’t get there in person.

The communication from them is first class - will definitely buy from them again and again!
