Southern Fells : Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells Book 4 (Lake District & Cumbria) Hardback
Illustrated by Alfred Wainwright
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, written half a century ago, have been treasured by generations of walkers.
This edition of The Southern Fells is freshly reproduced from Wainwright's original hand-drawn pages.
