Site Editor's Note

This was the very first volume, way back in the 1950s, of what were to become the famous Wainwright Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. Chris Jesty has done a great job in updating where necessary the details of the walks to take account of changes in the landscape over half a century, yet keeping the much-loved quirky Wainwright style unchanged.

Publisher's Description

The Eastern Fells includes the greatest single concentrated mass of high ground in Lakeland: a tremendous barrier running north and south, high and steep all along its length, rising to above 3000 feet on Helvellyn – the most-often climbed mountain in the Lake District. Popular resorts such as Ambleside and Grasmere lie in this sector of the fells, as does the beautiful Patterdale valley (the best base, in Wainwright's view, for exploring the area).

This second edition of The Eastern Fells by the legendary A. Wainwright has been brilliantly revised by Chris Jesty, a trained cartographer who worked with Wainwright on some of the maps in his later large-format guides. All footpaths have been rewalked, all routes checked, all maps and text updated. Paths and routes have been picked out in red to make them easier to follow, and parking information has been added. This new edition of the classic walking guide is Wainwright for the 21st century.
