Next Stop - Helvellyn!

Trail logoOne of the UK's most well known and iconic outdoors' magazines had a keen interest in Tubular Fells this month when it was featured on a two page spread (May 2011 pp26-27).  Peter was thrilled that the magazine he's been buying for years, featured his creation after Phoebe Smith, Features Editor of the magazine, contacted him towards the end of March.  Tubular Fells article in TrailThe article features a full colour recreation of the map, as well as the Wainwright Guides and their coloured dust jackets which did so much to inspire the 'lines' on Peter's map in the first place. It also covered some of the background behind the map, mentioning the 'Fix the Fells' project and very kindly including the url to this website for those wishing to purchase the map.  James Hoye was also very pleased to see that his photographs taken on top of Fairfield last year had been included in the piece and Paul Burgess was thrilled to see he'd also been included in one of his favourite mags.  Peter has offered Trail copies of the map as prizes, so look out for the offer in a future issue of Trail, he will announce when the competition is available for you to win your own copy of the map.Trail May 2011
That is just brilliant!
