This Lakeland Fellranger guide to the Near Eastern Fells of the Lake District covers the range of sprawling giants from Ambleside north to Threlkeld, between the long ribbons of Ullswater and Thirlmere. Long days of open fells and chiselled aretes await the walker, and with 35 fells with descriptions and variations in the guide, the possibilities are endless.

What sort of walking awaits? With so many peaks and pathways, there's something for walkers of all abilities. The Near Eastern Fells are sculpted and sweeping. From the justly famous heights of Helvellyn and Striding Edge, to St Sunday Crag, Fairfield, Catstycam and Hart Side, the Near Eastern fells offer fellranging pleasure, great or small, to everyone.

The Near Eastern 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 Near Eastern Fells with a Fellranger in hand is one to remember. 

  • A waterproof PVC cover and ribbon bookmark make this Lakeland Fellranger guide a handy companion in the hills.
  • Every route is illustrated with HARVEY maps, colour photographs, fellscape diagrams and panorama guides.
  • A walk and a fell for everyone - with alternative routes, height distance and timing information to tailor-make your ranging.

The Near Eastern Fells is just one guide of the eight-part Lakeland Fellranger series, covering a total of 227 fells. Where will you go next?

  • Activities
    walking and (occasional optional) scrambling
  • Seasons
    Suitable all-year round walking. Winter walking, even on the lower fells of the Lakes is not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.
  • Centres
    Ambleside, Patterdale, Grasmere
  • Difficulty
    Straightforward, short ascents, often not on clear paths, to be used as a basis for readers' own walks. Navigational skills needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling options are always provided.
  • Must See
    A fresh perspective on classic Lakeland summits like Fairfield, Red Screes and Helvellyn, and inspiring introduction to lesser-known fells such as Arnison Crag, High Pike and White Side, with crystal-clear Harvey mapping and the author's detailed elevation diagrams and panoramas.

The directions given on this page are incorrect and should read:

For Ambleside (5 miles) simply head south-west and, from Snarker Pike, south, with the ridge path obvious and secure
For Hartsop (3 miles), head west to follow a wall  north-west  down to Scandale Pass, turning east then north down Caiston Glen...”
