The primary aim of the Society is to keep alive the things which AW promoted through the guidebooks, started over 50 years ago.
We are delighted to be involved with Julia Bradbury and The Outdoor Guide. The Society, has over the years, raised many thousands of pounds for causes which we believe AW would have appreciated and supported.
There are now close to 1000 members including some notable members such as Julia Bradbury, Sir Chris Bonington, Stuart Maconie and Doug Scott.
Alfred Wainwright (1907-1991) will always be known for his famous Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells which he compiled between 1952 and 1966.
These handwritten and hand-drawn works of art have given inspiration to all true fellwalkers for the past forty years. For this labour of love, as he called it, he was awarded the MBE.
