Today I had a meeting with Clive Hutchby who has edited Wainwright Book 1, The Eastern Fells (more of that below) so we decided on a walk on the Far Eastern Fells which is the book under revision at the moment. When we arrived at Sadgill the weather was looking very promising and stayed pleasingly wintry pretty much all of the way round apart from a couple of heavy hail showers. The snow ceratinly lit up the scenery today showing this area in its best light. The only downside to that was the deep snow hid the worst of the boggy bits so on the odd occasion we were past boot depth in snow and mud.
On Saturday 4th April the Eastern Fells will be launched in Keswick Love the Lakes with the same happening on Sunday 5th April at Love the Lakes Bowness on Windermere. We would love to see you there – Clive Hutchby will be signing and the furry fiends Fletcher and Dougal will both be in attendance. If you cannot make it, you can pre-order a signed copy complete with the launch weekend stamp (shown above the book in the photo) here
