"I suggest the book should be called The Wainwright Compendium. it is absolutely crammed with information, statistics and facts . . . Sean McMahon's photographs are, of course, superb. No-one has analysed the Pictorial Guidebooks produced by Alfred Wainwright more closely than Clive Hutchby. He's counted the clouds in every book and the people - very few - and the rare self-portraits AW drew of himself. Clive's obsessive approach will have you refer again and again to the originals to match your favourites or try and catch him out on trivia/ statistics." - Unknown Reviewer.
Clive Hutchby has meticulously worked on updating the seven guides in the Wainwright series which has involved hundreds if not thousands of hours of work both on the fells themselves and in front of the computer updating the previous editions with new and realigned paths, stiles being replaced by gates, new footbridges and parking places.
