THE Wainwright Society 2015 calendar is now available – featuring stunning photographs of the Lake District taken by members.

There are also line drawings and quotations from the works of revered walking guides author and illustrator Alfred Wainwright.

Society secretary Derek Cockell said the calendar had sold out for the last five years, raising thousands of pounds for charities.


All profits this year will go to the Brathay Exploration Group Trust, which is based in Ambleside to fund a two-year programme of taster weekends to enable children from disadvantaged backgrounds to walk and climb on Lakeland’s fells and experience the joy that Wainwright had when he explored the mountains for the very first time.

The calendar is priced at £10 including p&p. It can be purchased from the Society website using PayPal or from
