Membership of the Society
If you admire the works of Alfred Wainwright, are a fellwalker, or user of the long distance walks that he wrote about and, in the case of the Coast to Coast Walk, pioneered, why not become a member of the Society?

By joining the Wainwright Society not only do you get, for the £12 annual membership fee, the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to keep alive the 'fellwalking traditions promoted by AW' but also helping the Society make its voice louder when it comes to issues which may impact on AW's beloved Lakeland. The welcome pack, which new members receive, includes one lapel badge. If members require more than one, these can be purchased, on request, at £1 each.

There is also a large range of member benefits to be gained ranging from a free, quarterly A5 32 page Newsletter to over 30 member discounts ranging from discounted prices on books, holiday accommodation, meals and outdoor clothing.
