Have you ever fancied walking with Wainwright?

Between 1952 and 1966, Wainwright climbed 214 Lake District summits to produce his seven Pictorial Guides. For more than 50 years, Alfred Wainwright's meticulous hand-drawn books have been an essential companion for visitors to the Lake District.

Actor Nik Wood Jones as Alfred Wainwright

The Golakes downloadable podcasts allow ramblers to receive Wainwrights directions whilst walking the walk, with actor and Wainwright impersonator Nik Wood Jones provides the voice of Wainwright.

Think of it as your own 'Flat-Cap Nav' - step by step and section at a time, the podcasts allow you to take in the sights and sounds of the amazing Lake District landscape whilst listening to Wainwright guide you.

Eric Robson

Broadcaster Eric Robson, who is chairman of the Wainwright Society and was one of the few people to walk with the great man says "Many people go walking in the Lake District with a Wainwright guide book for company, and this is their chance to experience what it might have been like taking a walk with the great man by your side.

"The idea that this priest and poet of the Lakeland fells is telling you which path to take while reading his love letter to the fells directly to you is a novel approach to 21st century hill walking."
