The Outlying Fells of Lakeland

The Outlying Fells of Lakeland

The Outlying Fells of Lakeland are described by Wainwright ‘for those walkers who, because of age or infirmity, must be content with milder expeditions on lesser fells.’

This guide is packed with gems of outstanding beauty which you don’t have to be super-fit to enjoy: Orrest Head, where his love affair with the Lake District began; Scout Scar, ‘a pleasure every step of the way’; Beacon Fell, ‘the epitome of that appeals to fell walkers’; and many more.

Each of its 56 chapters outlines a walk, sometimes taking in several summits, rather than a single fell. The arrangement of chapters in the book is roughly geographical, moving clockwise round the area from Kendal in the east.

The list of fells below has been arranged alphabetically rather than in height order – to align as close as possible with the list at the back of Wainwright’s book.
