    Default Wainwright's Walks

    Whilst channel hopping on Sunday night I came across a fantastic hour long profile of Alfred Wainwright on BBC4.

    Last night following on for that was a 30 min programme on one of his favourite walks on Haystacks

    Fortunately this programme is repeated next Monday 5th March at 7.30pm followed at 8.30pm by a second walk on Blencathra.

    I believe there are further 2 featured walks in subsequent weeks.

    Happy viewing.

    I saw the Sunday prog. Most illuminating story of a rather difficult man, most happy to be left to his own devices. I can relate!

    Good programs! It would be good to camp near the summit tarn on Haystacks.

    Looking forward to the programme on Blencathra as it is my personal favourite mountain in Cumbria.
