The Lake District Wainwrights – summit bagging with Large Outdoors
Like Britain’s best-known fell walker Alfred Wainwright, we’re passionate about the Lake District and when you come on one of our Lakeland trips you’ll see why.
Just reading his route descriptions makes you want to don your boots and take on the 214 peaks that are now known as Wainwrights. Each peak has its own characteristics – whether it’s Haystacks which Wainwright described as a ‘shaggy terrier in the company of foxhounds’ or the ‘friendly giant’ of Helvellyn.
So if, like us, you get the Wainwright bagging bug, why not come on our Lake District weekends? Don’t forget to have your guide sign your Large Outdoors log book so we can reward those who complete and tick off a number of the peaks during our trips, as if the enticement of devouring sticky toffee pudding isn’t enough!
