For the next 13 years he spent every weekend walking, and every weekday evening drawing and writing - completing one page per night.

The result was Wainwrights Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. Although initially self published they have now sold over a million copies and are still popular and much loved today.He went on to present a series of TV shows on the BBC about walking in the Lake District that made him even better known.

He was an unlikely celebrity, he preferred his own company and thought walking in the countryside should be a solitary rather than group pursuit. Wainwright: The Man Who Loved the Lakes introduces him to a new generation of lovers of the countryside, features some of Wainwrights favourite walks and is lavishly illustrated, including stunning aerial shots of the Lake District.
