Born in Blackburn, Lancashire in 1907, Alfred Wainwright began his love affair with the Lake District during a brief holiday to the area in 1930. From 1948 until his retirement in 1967, he served as Kendall's Borough Treasurer, and devoted his spare-time in researching and compiling his pictorial guides to the lakeland fells. Wainwright died in 1991 at the age of 84, leaving a legacy of fine work for future generations of enthusiasts to enjoy and follow in his footsteps.
