Bill Birkett

Bill Birkett is a well known Lake District Author and photographer, who has produced some of the most insightful and informative guidebooks of the Cumbrian fells over the last 3 decades or so. 

A bit of a local legend, Bill is a highly accomplished climber and mountaineer himself and comes from a 4 generation dynasty of pioneering Lakes 'cragsmen'  (his nephew Dave Birkett is currently one of the UK's leading climbers). Bill regularly appears on TV and is considered an authority on the Lake district's climbing and industrial history, it's landscape and it's diverse flora and fauna.
