This Lakeland Fellranger guide to the Southern Fells of the Lake District, caught beneath Wrynose and Hardknott pases, stretching from Coniston to the sea, provide walkers with a wide variety of possibilities. From the fame of Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam - essential climbs for any walker - to the rocky stretches and wooded hillsides of quieter peaks, the Southern Fells are an often-overlooked secret just beyond the crush of the popular Central Lakes.

What sort of walking awaits? This guide includes descriptions and multiple routes up 23 fells, suitable for walkers of all abilities. From the crags of Swirl How, to the open reaches of Hesk Fell and Great Worm Crag, to the southernmost bastion of the Lakes, Black Combe, the Southern Fells await.

The Southern 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 Southern 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 Southern 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 Northern Fells, The Mid-Western Fells, The Western Fells, The Central Fells, The Near Eastern Fells and The Far Eastern Fells.

  • Activities
    walking and (occasional optional) scrambling
  • Seasons
    Suitable all-year round walks. Winter walking, even on the lower fells of the Lakes, is not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.
  • Centres
    Great Langdale, Ambleside, Borrowdale, Keswick, Wasdale Head
  • 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 Scafell Pike, Bowfell and the Crinkles, and inspiring introduction to lesser-known fells such as Hard Knott, Rossett Pike and Whin Rigg, with crystal-clear Harvey mapping and the author's detailed elevation diagrams and panoramas.
