The Wainwright Prize winners are the winners of The Wainwright Golden Beer Book Prize, a prize which celebrates the finest of British nature writing. Wainwright Golden Beer sponsors the award, an award which is given in association with the National Trust.
Each year judges choose the book that they believe best reflects the core values of the well-known Alfred Wainwright, who passed away in 1991.
Wainwright cared enormously about Britain’s countryside, its uplands in particular, an environment with which he had a strong sense of connection and a desire to protect. He is probably most famous for his series of books known as Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells in which he describes, through words and illustrations, the ascents and surroundings of 214 fells in the Lake District National Park.
