Mark Richards on the Fellranger series and sustainable walking
In our March Cicerone Live event, join Cicerone and Fellranger author Mark Richards to celebrate finishing the new editions and discuss sustainable walking in the Lake District.
Mark Richards' transition from full-time farmer to full-time outdoor writer has been a gradual one. In 1973, with the direct encouragement of Alfred Wainwright, he wrote his first walking guide to the Cotswold Way. Since then he has indulged his pleasure in exploring rural Britain by creating a range of walking guides.
Mark published his first series of Fellranger guidebooks to the Lake District in 2013, sharing the best walking landscapes held within and around Cumbria. Between 2019 and 2021, Mark and Cicerone have worked to update and publish new editions of the Fellranger series, allowing walkers to rediscover the Lakeland Fells.
