The Lake District Wainwrights

A hill is classified as a Wainwright if it is one of the 214 Lake District fells described in Alfred Wainwright's seven volume A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells and a Wainwright Outlying Fell if it is one of the 116 described in his companion volume The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.

These books, which were first published in the fifties and sixties, have since been revised and for walkers we recommend the second editions which have been revised by Chris Jesty to reflect changes in the fells since.
