This Centenary edition of The Outlying Fells of Lakeland is published in the year of the 100th anniversary of the birth of A. Wainwright - the fell walking legend. It is newly reproduced from the author's original handwritten pages and bound in coloured cloth chosen to match the binding of the original volumes as closely as possible. The last of the classic Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells, this volume was compiled at the request of walkers no longer fit enough to scale the higher mountains of Lakeland. His selection of 56 foothills did not disappoint his audience's enthusiasm for the hills. Along with many other small gems not covered in any of the earlier guides, it includes Orrest Head, where the young Wainwright's lifelong love of Lakeland began.
