Volume One of a trilogy designed to cover approximately 200 walks of a secretive and secluded nature in the Lake District covering the Northern, North-Western and Central Fells as defined by Alfred Wainwright.

75 of Wainwright's ascent and ridge routes in Lakeland are described, and selected for their secret and secluded nature. The routes are described from a modern perspective with a comparison where appropriate with how Wainwright described them in his day. Each walk is conveyed as a story with details along the way about features of geology, local history and associated literature. An excellent enabler for those walkers who want to get away from the crowds and away from the traditional popular routes.
