About this deal

Regions are easily identified by printed tabs, so for example the Central fells section starts with a map featuring all the fells in the region (which are signified by a peak triangle that can be coloured in once completed) followed by a page-per-peak log book page for each mountain. Where we have had the opportunity to acquire items which are in themselves unique and contain original material we have, on a very selective basis, tried to do so and, where successful, donated these to the Cumbria Archive to enable future generations to be able to see them. Each log book page allows you to record your journey, including ascent and descent times, distance, weather conditions, local pub (and what you rate it!

This log book contains all 214 of the Wainwright famous peaks, the ever popular challenge is to climb all of them! The final collection was passed to Cumbria Archive in October 2014, less than six months from the start of the project.In 2014, it was agreed that the Society should however embark on a project to acquire a copy of every one of AW’s published items, the purpose of which was to try to ensure that a copy of his work was available for the future. Alfred Wainwright is probably best known for his Guidebooks but, when the total bibliography is inspected, his writing and, particularly his drawings are seen to be of at least equal importance. His reputation and the popularity of his work has of course led to numerous other books which are based on his achievements and story. An appeal was made to our members to donate any copies that they could give and this resulted in a tremendous start to this collection; in fact well over half of the titles we identified were supplied by members, with generous donations from the Wainwright family as well.

I am disappointed that I am now past the refund window but I will have to purchase a new book as this one is pretty useless! After deciding the spelling mistake on the front cover wasn’t an issue in the grand scheme of things I decided to keep the book!Following the content pages, you will find the bulk of this book: All 214 fells, each one dedicated to its own page to log your data. Wainwrights Log Book is a must-have for every hiker and Wainwright bagger who's trying to attempt all 214 Wainwrights and challenging himself/herself to reach the whole collection of Wainwright peaks.

One of the most unique features of this book is that each fell page contains the accurate OS Grid References for the peaks. All books were wrapped in protective material and stickers placed on the inside cover acknowledging who had donated the book where appropriate. This interactive element can be accessed by simply downloading a free ‘QR scanner’ to your smartphone. The pictures here show the main items of the collection in a display and after they were lodged with Peter Eyre at the Cumbria Archive.
