Only The Brave – Wainwright's Resting Place 2021

Sleeping by any tarn at night is eerie; try it when it’s misty and frozen in Winter on Wainwright’s birthday weekend at his final resting place!

Sleeping by any tarn at night is eerie; try it when it’s frozen solid with mist rolling over the ice towards your shelter, in Winter on Wainwright’s birthday weekend at his final resting place!

Alfred Wainwright spent 13 years writing The Pictorial Guide To The Lakeland Fells – the iconic series of guide books that everyone uses today to walk the Wainwrights. To celebrate Alfred and his works we’ll be spending the weekend visiting his favourite place, Haystacks, and his final resting place, Innominate Tarn, where his ashes were scattered.

This will be a challenging wild camp. Last year the tarn was frozen solid and it was very, very cold.
