The 214 Wainwright fells and the tarns of the Lake District Map

A labour of love.

In 1955, the genius, both illustratively and typographically, Alfred Wainwright wrote in his first Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells.

Surely there is no other place in this wonderful world quite like Lakeland . . . no other so exquisitively lovely, no other so charming, no other that calls so insistently across a gulf of distance. All who truly love Lakeland are exiles when away from it.

I can only concur with his sentiment.

This map is my attempt to reflect this. It is dedicated to my father, Howard Shackleton who introduced me to the Lakeland Fells some 45 years ago. The map has taken over 400 hours to complete. Like Wainwright's Guides, it has been a labour of love. It is designed to be a piece of art, pleasing to the eye and something which people would be proud to hang on their walls. Every fell and every tarn are accurate in terms of Grid Reference. It can be used to plan future routes, familiarise yourself with the proximity of the fells and tarns or simply to reminisce about days spent on the fells.

I am delighted to be in association with, and to be able to help Fix the Fells, the trust which protects our spectacular Lakeland Fells from erosion by maintaining and repairing the paths. For every map sold, a pound will be donated to them, to help fund their work, and maintain the fells for generations to come.
