SKIDDAW - WAINWRIGHT COLLECTION
A Wainwright is the summit of what Alfred Wainwright (1907-1991) thought were true Cumbrian fell tops. There are a total of 214 ‘Wainwrights’ which have over the years become a very popular pastime for all the many Wainwright Baggers.
Skiddaw 931M is the sixth-highest in England and lies just north of the town of Keswick, Cumbria, and dominates the skyline in this part of the northern lakes. Although not as rugged looking as some of the Lake District’s peaks Skiddaw holds special qualities and being isolated from its mountain neighbours provided the walker with unrestricted views from its summit and from its southern side are arguably the best in the Lake District.
