A Pennine Journey
In September 1938, Alfred Wainwright made a solitary walk through the Pennines. The following year he wrote up an account A Pennine Journey pictorial guideof this walk, which was eventually published in 1986.

Now, a new pictorial guide, written by members of the Wainwright Society, is a recreation of this walk adapted for today’s roads and rights-of-way, taking a route that Wainwright might have chosen if he was planning it today.

Wainwright Society members can purchase the book at a discounted rate by downloading the PDF order form from the Members Only area of the website.

The book is also available to non-members to purchase by clicking here to download an order form.
