Books and Maps for the Fell Walker
There is something of a cottage industry in A. Wainwrights' books. Here is a local source. And of course Amazon has these too.
A great source for maps and waypoints online is www.go4awalk.com. There is a small fee, but you can get individual maps and waypoints for these maps, including the Coast to Coast walk planned by Wainwright. The book of his that I used was Twelve Favourite Mountains. This featured Haystacks as his favourite. The Coast to Coast in on my list -- I have the waypoints ready for my GPS.
