The Mid-Western Fells of the Lake District lie in a wedge above Hardknott Pass stretching north to Borrowdale, between Elterwater and Little Langdale in the east to Wast Water and Wasdale. The 22 fells described in this guide are some of the highest and most renowned in Lakeland, including the highest peak in England, Scafell Pike. With multiple route variations for every fell, the possibities for walkers of all abilities are endless.

What sort of walking awaits? The Mid-Western fells are the heart of the Lake District, a range of the most beloved peaks. The craggy summits of Bowfell, the Crinkle Crags and Great End mix with the scree-lined hillsides of Illgill Head and the chiselled heights of Scafell, Pike o'Blisco and Glaramara. But don't overlook the other Mid-Western fells, for exquisite fell walking can be found just next-door to the Lakeland greats.

The Mid-Western 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 Mid-Western 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 Mid-Western 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 Lake District 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 summits of the Lake District 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.
