With fell walking in the Lake District growing in popularity not just by the year but even by the week. Novice walkers are taking to the fells and realising the beauty of it and accomplishment and those who have been into walking the Lake District fells for some time are taking it one step further and completing longer routes or even the hallowed Wainwright’s 214 peaks.
Although an Ordnance Survey map is required for any walk, a Wainwright illustrated guide to the Lake District is just the temptation whilst sipping a coffee at home, planning the route and getting excited at the prospect of completing it, the insightful and engaging written text perfectly in balance with the detailed and highly accurate line drawings Wainwright is so famous or.
These handcrafted Lake District relief maps have been created by Lake District resident and fell runner Chris Scammell and his business, Map Sculpture. Having had first hand experience of most of the fells either walking running or from above paragliding, Chris along with his carving and creative skills has produces pieces of art any fell walker would love to own and have on their wall. A great way to mark a friends completion of 214 Wainwright’s in a year don’t you think!
