Welcome to Striding Edge

The new look Striding Edge

Welcome to the new look Striding Edge, please be aware that the site was changed in a hurry as the old platform ceased to be supported any more. The old walks and functionality aren’t fully there yet, so it is very much a ‘work in progress’. Thanks for your understanding, it might take a little while as there are 10 years of walks to upload!

The old site is here (please don’t order a calendar as there aren’t any left!)

Dedicated to fell walking in the Lake District

1000013_706035832770173_2090859490_nStriding Edge is the photo diary of Sean McMahon’s fell walks, capturing the beauty and moods of the wonderful Cumbrian landscape. The site contains details of the Lake District’s 214 Wainwright fells and 541 Birkett fells as well as walking routes and guides.

There are regularly updated photos and maps of walks with distances, timings, ascents and route descriptions. Each Wainwright and Birkett Lake District fell has its own information page which includes height details, fell grouping, accurate GPS co-ordinates and a summit photo.

All walks described are provided in good faith, the maps and routes described here are not an indication of right of way, but an indication of general direction only. Any walk undertaken is done so at your own risk. Enjoy the spectacular views!
