The Western Fells 50th Anniversary Edition. Rare Kendal Printed Version.
The Western Fells offer widely diverse scenery and popular resorts such as Buttermere and Wasdale Head. They include fine peaks such as Pillar and Great Gable that rise close to 3,000 feet. There is also the fascinating Haystacks (where Wainwright asked that his ashes be scattered) and valley and lake scenery of the very best vintage.
The Pictorial Guides by A. Wainwright, written half a century ago, have been treasured by generations of walkers. This edition of The Western Fells is freshly reproduced from Wainwright’s original hand-drawn pages.
This rare edition was printed in Kendal using special paper produced by James Croppers to match the original First Edition guides.
