Wainwright Hills in the Lake District

The Wainwrights are the summits featured by Alfred Wainwright in his  7 volume Pictoral Guide to the Lake District fells.

There are 214 Wainwright summits, all in the Lake Distict. Unlike other hill lists, they’re not defined on height, but rather on Alfred Wainwright’s choice.

For a rundown on walking the Wainwrights, we receommend Dave Chick’s Guide to the Wainwrights here on Mud and Routes.
