Wainwright Society Calendar 2018

Following the success of previous years, the Society is once again producing a pictorial calendar for 2018. This uses the photographic skills of some of our members, all of whom have provided their services free of charge. The calendar is large format, size A3 with one page per month. Each month features a photograph taken by a member together with a related sketch and quote from one of AW’s famous works.

The proceeds from sales of the 2018 calendar will be donated to Fix the Fells which undertakes the repair of eroded and damaged upland paths in the Lake District. The work is undertaken by National Trust fell rangers and Lake District National Park Authority volunteers. In the last ten years, it has repaired more than 200 sections of fell paths using a variety of traditional techniques. The money raised will be used to repair Long Stile, the final section of the ridge from Mardale Head to the summit of High Street in the Far Eastern Fells, between Ullswater and Haweswater. Alfred Wainwright considered this ascent along the crest of the ridge to be the connoisseur’s route up High Street.

The scree ascent of Long Stile has suffered much erosion in recent years and is now in need of a stone-pitched path to stop it getting worse. The land on either side of the path also needs to be repaired and protected from further damage. This will require stone to be brought in by helicopter, which will add to the cost of the repair. The work is scheduled to be undertaken during 2018.

The price for 2018 has been held at £10 for web sales for buyers in the UK, EU and the US/Canada. Prices for other areas can be provided on request and these and any other queries concerning the calendar should be sent to calendars@wainwright.org.uk. Calendars will also be on sale at the Society lecture at Rheged on 7 October and at some Society walks.

Purchasers can order multiple copies of the calendar by changing the quantity in the order form . If you would like the calendar delivered to a different address to the billing address please untick the box and a second address box will appear to add the delivery address.

Please note that calendars may take 7-10 days to arrive from the date the order is placed as the operation is run by volunteers and calendars are normally sent out in batches once or twice per week.
