The Wainwright Memorial Walk is the challenging 102-mile route that A. Wainwright devised, and walked with three friends over the Whitsuntide holiday of 1931. Based on a sketch map he produced at the time, it has been possible to reconstruct the walk from the maps he later drew for his unique Pictorial Guides, and the route has been highlighted on the maps for this book. This new edition follows exactly the same route but has been divided into eleven shorter stages which can be walked independently if the whole round cannot be done as one. To walk even a few stages of this walk will commemorate the man who gave so much to the Lake District.

It's a great guidebook, and I will be making use of it this summer. Garstang CourierSynopsis:
In 1931, the author and three companions walked through the Lake District on such a route that every lake, every valley and every mountain would be seen, if not actually visited. The "manuscript" consists of five pages of text which is in the ownership of the last surviving member of the walking team. The book is mainly photographic, but enhanced by Wainwright's own illustrations from his pictorial guides and captions drawn from his text.
