Clive Hutchby will be the speaker at the 2017 Wainwright Memorial Lecture, which is to be held at 6 pm on Saturday 7th October at the Rheged Centre, Redhills, Penrith.

Clive is author of The Wainwright Companion and for the past four years, has been walking in Wainwright’s footsteps whilst revising Alfred Wainwright's Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. Books One, Two Three & Four (The Eastern Fells, The Far Eastern Fells, The Central Fells and The Southern Fells) have already been published. Clive is undertaking the research for Book Five: The Northern Fells during 2017.

Clive first came to the Lake District aged 12 climbing his first fell, Catbells on an unforgettable holiday. He is a former newspaper journalist, having edited publications in the UK, USA and Ireland, and is now a writer, designer and photographer. He lives in the Lake District National Park.
