The only series the legendary fell-walker, ALFRED WAINWRIGHT, made for television.

When the young Alfred Wainwright first saw the mountains of the Lake District it was an experience that changed his life. As an old man AW recreated his love affair with Lakeland in broadcaster Eric Robson's company. They explored Orrest Head and Kendal, Haweswater, Borrowdale and made an emotional visit to AW's favourite mountain Haystacks. He also introduced Eric to the Howgill Fells, Penyghent and the Pennine valley of Teesdale.

In 1987 Wainwright and Eric travelled from Cape Wrath in the far north of Scotland to the Isle of Skye, the Torridon mountains, Glen Coe, the Cairngorms and many other special places.

AW shares the highlights of his 190 mile walk from the Irish Sea at St. Bees Head in the Lake District to Robin Hood's Bay on the North Yorkshire coast. Two thirds of the route lies within three contrasting National Parks: the rugged mountains and beautiful lakes of the Lake District, the rolling hills and pretty valleys of the Yorkshire Dales and the expansive heather moorland of the North York Moors, with dramatic coastal scenery at each end.

Spectacular scenery and walking in the company of a master. A perfect gift. Secure your purchase by clicking the shopping basket button at the top right of the screen now. Available individually. See separate listings.

                          If your order shows as dispatched and hasn't arrived within the expected time frame, please first check with your local delivery office before contacting us with the details.


                          How much is delivery?

                          Delivery across New Zealand and Australia is free on all orders.

                          Products are usually despatched separately even if you have ordered them together. If you would like to have items sent to separate addresses please complete a separate order for each address.


                          How are orders despatched?

                          We ship all items from our warehouses and reliable suppliers in three countries from which we source and ship out orders; they are located in New Zealand, Australia & UK.

                          We ship out orders from suppliers located closest to your location (depending on where the item is in stock) to ensure quick and safe delivery. We use suppliers from NZ, Australia & UK depending on availability of the item to ensure you receive your item as quickly as possible.


                          HOW WILL IT BE DELIVERED?
                          This will be dependent on the size and value of the parcel. Deliveries are shipped by Airmail to worldwide destinations from our fulfilment centres in New Zealand, Australia, US & UK depending on which centre holds the stock and which is closer for quicker delivery to you. Sometimes we will use our suppliers and distributor labels to ship the item direct to you in order to reduce delivery times.


                          Whilst we always aim to keep items in stock so we can ship your order immediately, unfortunately this is not always possible for a number of reasons:
                          1. Our aim is to offer you a wide range of dvd & blu ray titles and some of these are fast sellers which can quickly run out of stock and therefore we need to source these to order.
                          2. Sometimes we are reliant on labels and distributors and we have no control over delays incurred by our third party suppliers.



                          All non-delivered items will be replaced or refunded in full as our deliveries are insured against loss/damage.
