The Central Fells of the English Lake District comprise the high ground between Great Langdale and Keswick. The area is flanked to the west by Stake Pass, Langstrath, Borrowdale and Derwentwater, and to the east by Grasmere, Dunmail Raise and Thirlmere. While the finest scenic moments tend to be around its periphery, the interior also offers many great opportunities for delightful day walks. Author Mark Richards combines his passion for the Lake District and artistic flair with all the information the experienced walker needs to explore and enjoy the Central Fells.
The range is generally of a lower elevation, with few narrow ridges, and has no incisive roads. But, it also harbours heather-clad fells, quiet dales such as Wythburn, Greenburn and Shoulthwaite, and, to cap it all, superlative viewpoints at many levels from Loughrigg Terrace to High Raise.
??For each of the 28 hills covered, this guidebook offers:?
• a dedicated chapter, with full descriptions of a range of new and old routes
?• full-colour Harvey maps and clear elevation diagrams
• detailed summit panoramas?
• lots of inspiring photographs.??
This guidebook is one of the first to be published in Cicerone’s 8-volume Lakeland Fellranger series, which provides a comprehensive new guide to the fells of the English Lake District, with a selection of new routes up 227 hills.
