Those who love to go walking
in the Lake District and elsewhere may enjoy a special treat when a member of the Wainwright Society delivers a dramatised account of the fellwalking guru's life.
Founder of the Wainwright Society Tom Burland will deliver the performance in the village of Mellor near Manchester on September 16th, on an evening that comes complete with a hot-pot supper.
Alfred Wainwright became famous for his seven hand-illustrated pictorial guides to the Lakeland fells, with his own list of 214 summits becoming a popular tick-list for walkers.
The evening will include this period as well as the earlier life of the author, who was born in Blackburn but moved up to Kendal after falling in love with the area.
Mellor itself offers extensive walking possibilities, with Mellor Moor standing over 1,000 ft above sea level, featuring many footpaths and lying close to the border of the Peak District with extensive views across to Kinder Scout.
