The Northern Fells of the Lake District roll north from Keswick in bold sweeps of hillside. They offer a taste of classic fellwalking to those who explore beyond the clutch of the busier peaks. 23 fells are described in this guide, with route variations ensuring that there's potential for walkers of any and all abilities, so the Northern Fells may be enjoyed to their full.
What sort of walking awaits? Broad sweeps of heather-clad fells and an expanse of grass, rock and sky make it the home of a peace and remoteness for ramblers. Summits of high fellwalking ambition such as Skiddaw and Blencathra watch over Keswick, before sprawling north into deep valley basins and moor-like hilltops of Brae Fell, Great Calva, Great Cockup and Knott.
The Northern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Fellrangers mix the perfect balance of inspiration and information as they provide a comprehensive guide to the fells of the English Lake District. In every book, a dedicated chapter covers each fell, with a variety of routes, both time-honoured and undiscovered depicted on Harvey maps. The author's own topos and summit panoramas, not to mention breathtaking photography, enhance the reader's journey, and make sure that any trip to the Northern Fells with a Fellranger in hand is one to remember.
The Northern Fells is just one guide of the eight-part Lakeland Fellranger series, covering a total of 227 fells. Where will you go next? To explore the Lakeland fells in full, check out the other guides on Cicerone's website: The North-Western Fells, The Mid-Western Fells, The Western Fells, The Central Fells, The Southern Fells, The Near Eastern Fells and The Far Eastern Fells.
(p168) the first stages are "a gloomy coniferous tunnel." A note to be added on p171 under Safe Descents that this route can be very difficult because of the poor light.
