The companion to the BBC series Wainwright Walks, with Julia Bradbury following in the footsteps of famous fell-walker and guide writer AW Wainwright. The series includes beautiful aerial sequences of Lakeland icons Blencathra and England's tallest mountain Scafell Pike. It was first broadcast in 2008 and regularly repeated on BBC4 and BBC2, most recently in December 2011.

The book collects together all ten of the walks from Series I and II, with clear directions and Julia's commentary on her experience of the walks. Stills from the original series are augmented by the famous line drawings from Wainwright's original books, and evocative landscape photography by Derry Brabbs.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'a thorough guide for beginner walkers and experts alike, with Julia's first-hand experiences, factual information and important tips.'


'In her book, peppered with pub recommendations, anecdotes and pictures of misty peaks and craggy contours, Julia Bradbury pays tribute to Wainwright'


'The Countryfile star picks her 10 favourite routes ... it does give very detailed descriptions, which can be used to plot a course yourself - equally it's a great one for armchair walkers happy to enjoy the sights and sounds of the hills from the comfort of their own home'


Stills from the original series are augmented by the famous line drawings from Wainwright's original books and evocative landscape photography by Derry Brabbs; his double-page photographs at the start of each chapter are truly stunning! Julia treats us to a 'behind the camera' personal view of the making of this successful and very popular T.V. series. I enjoyed reading her 'overview' at the beginnning of each chapter in which her sensitivity to what she sees in such beautiful landscapes, along with her response to it, is well expressed in her warm and competent writing style. A lovely book
