Another Waynwright Day – 31 August 2019
We’re supporting 16 year old Amy Bray as she takes action against climate change and encourages others to do the same.
On 31 August she is launching Another Way, a new charity, with a record-breaking attempt to put the most people on the Wainwright* summits at the same time (1pm).
Amy wants to encourage people to live sustainably and hopes by getting lots of people to summit a Wainwright Fell simultaneously, to help raise awareness of the current climate crisis.
To help Amy achieve this goal we are leading four free fantastic guided walks. We will be summiting Dow Crag, Lingmoor and Souther fells. In addition a fourth walk with take in Green Gable, Brandreth and Grey Knotts – with a guided walk leader on each top at 1pm.
Our Vision is for The Lake District National Park to be an inspirational example of low carbon and sustainable development in action. So we’re delighted to be joining Amy in helping to highlight this important issue.
Please join our volunteer guided walk leaders and get involved to support this fantastic cause.
*Alfred Wainwright was the author of seven well-known guidebooks called the Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells. In total he identified 214 ‘Wainwrights’ or fell tops. A popular pastime for walkers in the Lake District is to try to summit or ‘bag’ all of these fells. The Pictorial Guides contain a mix of stunning pen-and-ink sketches, maps and musings.
