The Far Eastern Fells of Lakeland rise to the east of Kirkstone Pass and the Patterdale valley. To the north and south they run down into low country, and eastwards they merge into the high ground of the Pennines. Many of the heights are relatively inaccessible and lonely, but the scenery here and the excellence of the walks rank, in Wainwright’s view, with the Lake Disctrict’s best.
The outer boundary of Wainwright’s Lakeland Fells is the Head of Ullswater and Haweswater in the North-east, and Longsleddale Valley Church to the South-east. This area then extends across to Ambleside’s Wansfell in the South West.
