Grassington, 48 Main St, Grassington, Skipton BD23 5AZ, UK
A lifelong love of the outdoors and admiration for Alfred Wainwright inspired Yorkshire-born engineer Chris Butterfield to build an archive honouring the world-famous fell wanderer and safeguarding his legacy.
At this GDI hosted event Chris discusses the life of Alfred Wainwright and the people who knew him. Chris also talks about his new book – Wainwright Memories – featuring three unique Wainwright stories that took place during his later years. These tales will give the reader a deeper understanding of the inspirational fell wanderer. There will be a question-and-answer section and a Wainwright-related giveaway.
