‘Nowhere Fast’ is the story of one family’s attempt to climb all the Wainwrights - 214 of the country’s highest mountains, all situated in the breathtakingly beautiful English Lake District.

Nowhere Fast Walking the Wainwrights

  • The Wainwrights include Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw - the four highest mountains in England. Climbing over one hundred and ninety five thousand feet (six times the height of Mount Everest), and walking nearly six hundred miles over the course of six years, Nowhere Fast follows the journey of Andy, Tania and their two sons – William and Tom, as they battle the elements and scale the peaks. Sharing success and failure, highs and lows, laughter and tears, the challenge proves that anything is possible and that what really binds a family together is shared experience.
