Society continues peak bagging plan
Bookmark and Share
The Wainwright Society is continuing its plan to have one of its members stand on every one of the peaks mentioned in three of the author's books in May.

Alfred Wainwright is famous for his 214 Lake District peaks mentioned in his seven pictorial guides to the fells, but the society is also seeking to add the 56 listed in the Outlying Fells, as well as peaks in the 34 walks in Walks in Limestone Country and the 32 routes in Walks in the Howgill Fells.

The list is currently incomplete, with more people required to sign up to don their men's walking boots or women's walking boots and take on the various walks and ascents during the event between May 1st and May 23rd.

Each participant has been asked to donate at least £10 to the Fix the Fells charity to take part, with the option of raising more cash through sponsorship.

Formed in 2002, Fix the Fells aims to carry out footpath repair in the Lake District.

It has stated that so far 160 routes have benefited from its work, although another 60 are in urgent need of action.
