Nestled in northwest England is the Lake District, a land of visually stunning fells (mountains) and lakes. Its natural beauty inspired the romantic Lake Poets, Wordsworth, Southey and Coleridge and writer Beatrix Potter. Known to millions who love the Lakes is late author, guide writer, artist and fell walker, Alfred Wainwright (1907-1991), whose 7-volume Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells have motivated generations of fell walkers to explore this lovely landscape.
Armed with Wainwright's famous illustrated guides, host and novice climber Julia Bradbury faithfully follows ten of his most popular routes. With spectacular aerial views, fascinating history and evocative Wainwright quotes, this is an entertaining, must-see exploration of the classic walks and climbs of England's scenic Lake District.
