The Wainwright Society has announced that the 2018 Calendar has just been published and is now on sale.
Once again, the format includes photographs of the Lake District taken by Society members, together with line drawings and quotations from the works of Alfred Wainwright.
For the past eight years, the Calendar has completely sold out raising thousands of pounds for our designated charities!
All profits from the sale of the calendar will be donated to the Fix the Fells for the repair of Long Stile, the final ascent on to the summit of High Street in the Far Eastern Fells, between Ullswater and Haweswater. Alfred Wainwright considered this ascent from Mardale to be the finest way to the summit.
Fix the Fells undertakes the repair of eroded and damaged footpaths in the Lake District. The work is undertaken by National Trust fell rangers and Lake District National Park Authority volunteers. In the last ten years, more than 200 sections of fell paths have been repaired using a variety of traditional techniques.
The price of the calendar has been held at £10 including p&p. The calendar can be purchased direct from the Society website using PayPal. Details are on the Society website: http://www.wainwright.org.uk/calendar/index.html
