About Alfred Wainwright

ALFRED WAINWRIGHT was born in Blackburn in 1907. A holiday at the age of 23 kindled a life-long love affair with the Lake District. Following a move to Kendal in 1941 he began to devote every spare moment he had to researching and compiling the original seven Pictorial Guides. He described these as his 'love letters' to the Lakeland Fells. Wainwright died in 1991 at the age of 84. TOM HOLMAN is a freelance writer living in Lindale in the southern Lake District. He has walked extensively in the Lakes, having been carried up his first fell at the age of 18 months. Before going freelance, Tom worked for The Bookseller, the weekly magazine for the books business. His other titles for Frances Lincoln are Lake District Miscellany (ISBN 9780711228511), Lancashire Miscellany (ISBN 9780711230934), Yorkshire Miscellany (ISBN 9780711228658), Best Walks in the Lake District (ISBN 9780711224216), Best Walks in Northumberland (ISBN 9780711224223) and The Good Guide to the Lakes (ISBN 9780711228610).
