Wainwright presentation to take place in Lakes village hall
Bookmark and Share
A village hall in the Lake District will be the scene for a dramatic presentation on the life of fellwalking expert Alfred Wainwright tonight (April 1st).

Those who like to go walking may be interested in the show in Penruddock near Penrith by John Burland of the Wainwright Society, which costs £5 to see and will raise money for repairs to the venue, Grough reports.

It tells the tale of the writer's life from his beginnings in Blackburn and through his growing interest in the fells, through to his move to Kendal and the development of his famous pictorial guides.

The first performance of the show was at the 2009 Ilkley Literature Festival, with Ramsbottom, Marple Ramblers and the Easingwold University of the Third Age pencilled in for upcoming dates.

Bagging the Wainrights - the 214 fells listed in his seven guidebooks - has become a popular pastime with fellwalkers.

They vary in height from the 978 ft Castle Crag in Borrowdale to the 978 m (3,210 ft) Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain.
