The Wainwright Society has announced that following agreement with the Wainwright Estate, the Society is about to become the publisher of a limited number of out-of-print books by Alfred Wainwright.
The first book to be re-published will be A Pennine Journey, which it is hoped will be available by late spring 2019. The book will include additional material produced by Wainwright at the time it was written in 1938. Many new readers will be unaware of this material and the Society hopes that its inclusion may help to attract new (and old) readers to this latest edition. The republication of A Pennine Journey will be followed by The Outlying Fells of Lakeland at a later date.
The aims in republishing these titles are to keep the books in print as well as meeting one of the principal objects of the Society: To keep alive the fellwalking traditions promoted by AW through his guidebooks and other publications.
