Top 10 Walks: Lake District: The High Fells



This handy, pocket size book explores ten short circular routes on the best high fells in the Lake District.

The Lakeland fells have inspired writers, artists and walkers for centuries. Like the deep valleys that separate them, they were formed by the flow and grind of ancient ice sheets. Above the 2,000-foot contour, they form a high mountain environment whose sheer cliffs, narrow edges, and exposed rocky summits demand respect.

Today, this rugged upland landscape is one of the most visited hill walking areas in Britain. The high fells feature enough classic routes, challenges and captivating views to delight even the most demanding fell walker.



One of ten books in the new Top 10 Walks: Lake District series.

This attractive and cleverly structured guidebook gives walkers the ten finest routes on Cumria’s highest fells in a popular pocketable format.

With clear information, an overview and introduction for each walk, expertly written numbered directions, Ordnance Survey maps, superb, eye-grabbing panoramic photographs, and interpretation of points of interest along the way, these guides set a new standard in clarity, appeal and ease-of-use.

What they say …

“These may be humble walking guidebooks, but in the quality of their writing, photography and general production, they can justifiably claim to be miniature artworks. They set a standard to which other guidebooks might hope to aspire.”

— Anthony Toole, Outdoor Focus magazine
