Category : Books
Wainwrights Snowdonia PaperbackAnyone's who's familiar with walking in the great outdoors will have heard of the great Alfred Wainwright and more than likely of his wonderful pictoral guides to the Lake District Fells and further afield. When Snowdonia is mentioned however, then guidebook writers such as Poucher and Showell Styles spring to mind, but certainly not Wainwright. Until resently I wasn't aware that he'd produced a book of Welsh Mountain Drawings when I was told of a fascinating new book that recreates each of those line drawings with photographs. Apparently, it wasn't until he was 72 that AW relented and visited Snowdonia, having favoured his beloved Lake District, thinking Snowdonia was scarred by quarries. This was, in his own words, "a book of atonement, an admission that I have been wrong and an act of restitution. I owe North Wales an apology. "Wainwright’s Snowdonia in Photos - 101 Viewpoints and Walks - is a fitting tribute to his belated visit. Not only does the book contain 101 stunning images, but also a walking guide in order for you to reach each location and experience each image yoursef. The book is available from independent publishers -Mumford Books and Landscape-guides on their site, where you can download other free e-book samples, or purchase their full e-book interactive CD-ROM at £14 each, or a quality hardback at £44. viewpoint has a detailed route guide from the nearest carpark or road side.

Wainwright (1907-1991), much loved by ramblers and fell walkers, will always be remembered for his famous ‘Pictorial Guides, compiled between 1955 and 1984. Mainly known for his works on the Lake District, many people may not be aware of his visits to Snowdonia and in particular his ‘Welsh Mountain Drawings’, first printed in 1981 towards mthe end of his publishing career. In black and white sketches, he recorded the spectacular mountain views, including aspects of Snowdonia’s rich industrial heritage .Now for the first time, an interactive eGuide has been compiled with fullcolour photographs of Wainwright’s stunning Snowdonia vistas. A team of landscape photographers have searched for the exact locations of the original viewpoints and recorded digitally the same views some 30 years later. Obviously there will be some differences where trees have grown, boundaries have changed and structures built. But, they have made notes about their findings and recorded their locations using a GPS device. You too can now stand where Wainwright once admired the timeless beauty of Snowdonia. Taking advantage of modern technology, such as this interactive e-Guide with links to e-Maps, GPS data and up-to-date weather forecasts, it is now possible to accurately and safely access the Welsh mountains like never before. Enjoy the beauty, but don’t forget the countryside code .Use our unique and free Interactive Route Planner to plan your walk before setting out. Click on the ‘walker button’ and you will link to, where you can construct an ‘easy-draw’walking route. A ‘YouTube’ video will guide you through the simple process of making your own walk on a Google map or satellite view. You will be able to add markers/symbols to the map to remind you of things to look for, such as, start point, Wainwright viewpoint, etc. You can look on the Internet for other features, like hotels or campsite
