Wainwright's Pennine Journey
In September 1938 just a year before the outbreak of World War II, Alfred Wainwright made a solitary walk through the Pennines. Always the author, he wrote a book about his experience which he titled 'A Pennine Journey'. The book was not published until 1986 long after his reputation as a guidebook writer of extraordinary talent was established through his pictorial guides to the Lake District. A lot has changed since 1938 and we are fortunate that a team of volunteers from the Wainwright Society led by David Pitt, have laboured long to devise a modern route which as near as possible follows Wainwright's original Pennine journey, so now you can also follow this excellent route.
