The North-Western Fells of the English Lake District make up a rectangle of high ground between Keswick and Cockermouth, bound by Bassenthwaite, Buttermere and Borrowdale. From their high link with the Western Fells on Honister Pass through to their northernmost limits, the North-Westerns are never found wanting when it comes to walking pleasure.
This area is one of rich diversity. There are beautiful dales such as Wythop and Newlands as well as Borrowdale of course. There are also mountain passes to cross in the car and on foot; Honister and Coledale Hause to name just two. Forest tracks are also waiting to be explored here, through Thornthwaite Forest. So whatever your preference, there’s sure to be something for you.
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 North-Western Fells.
For each of the 29 hills covered, this guide 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 the 6th 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 more than 220 hills.
