Wainwrights

The Eastern FellsThe Wainwright Fells are those listed in the seven books entitled ‘A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells’. Written more than 40 years ago, they remain the definitive Lake District guide books and the 214 fells listed remain a completion goal of many fell walkers.

Since 2005, the author Chris Jesty has been updating the Wainwright books and the second edition books are certainly the ones to buy as they show latest footpaths and terrain changes. A full range of the latest Wainwright Guide books are available at www.lovethelakes.net.

Below is a list of the Wainwright Lakeland Fells in height order. All heights in metres are taken from the Ordnance Survey maps and the height in feet is calculated (*3.2808399). The heights in feet may well vary from those in the Wainwright guide book. GPS references where given were taken at the summit cairn of the indicated fell using a Garmin Vista hand held unit and are accurate as far as the unit will allow.
