Between 1955 and 1966, Alfred Wainwright wrote what are probably the most painstakingly produced mountain walking guidebooks ever published. Seven volumes cover the Lake District and each is meticulously written and drawn and mapped entirely by hand with hundreds of black and white drawings and maps, all to the very highest quality.

For many years these books were not revised and some of the information in them became inaccurate. However in recent years Chris Jesty and Clive Hutchby have updated the originals and clever computer techniques have allowed this to be done in such away that the changed material is indistinguishable from the original content. Thus these fine guides are are once again guides in the true sense of the word - ie they can be relied on when you're in the fells.

Volume 2 covers the area east of Ullswater, Kirkstone Pass and Windermere.

Card cover (please note, earlier editions were hardback), 17cm x 11cm, 316 pages.
