Wainwright's and Outlying Fells

*This is one of many trips that didn't get posted when I all but abandoned this blog back in 2015. It's now 2020 and I'm adding in that missing content in a more photo-based blog post, this trip was from 2018*

I wrote a piece for TGO magazine about this hike that I recommend reading, it's available as a back issue for £4.99.

For more info on the Wainwright's then look here and for the Outlying Fells here. For more info on bagging try here.

To be honest I didn't know a lot about the Wainwright's or even the man himself. My first long-distance hike was Wainwright's Coast to Coast and that was about the level of my knowledge at that point. Of course, I was aware of the 214 Wainwright's which are extremely popular peaks to bag, but I'd never even heard of his 116 additional Outlying Fells.
