The Far Eastern Fells of the Lake District rise beyond the crush of the central Lakes, from Ullswater and Penrith in the north, down to the east of Ambleside and the moorland of Shap. 33 fells are described in this guide, with route variations ensuring that there's potential for walkers of any and all abilities, so the Far Eastern Fells may be enjoyed to their full.

What sort of walking awaits? Long sweeps of grassy ridges on High Street and Grey Crag. Small, rugged peaks around Ullswater and Wansfell outside Ambleside. Craggy fells in heather and scree with waterfalls tumbling over the hillsides up the remote valleys of Kentdale, Martindale and Patterdale. Caudale Moor, Hartsop Dodd, Ill Bell and Yoke may not have the fame of other Lakeland peaks, but walking their rugged hillsides can be unforgettable. 

The Far 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 Far 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.
  • Mark up your fells after a day's walk in the fell checklist to chronicle your adventures in the Lakes

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

Route 4 Up Angletarn Pikes page 24

I had duplicated the latter part of the ascent of Brock Crag to the final part of route 4 up Angletarn Pikes in error. So the latter should read (bold the new text):

Alternatively, you may opt for a more casual start, avoiding early ascent, by following the approach road back towards the main valley road, to turn right 50m short at a white house ‘Langton Adventure Centre’ along the by-road signed ‘Hartsop Fold’. After the chalet park this becomes a confined path leading to a gate, ford and footbridge spanning Angletarn Beck.Bear up right on the north bank to meet a fording lateral path. The ascent is obvious though there are moments when a steady step is needed working up the rocky flank accompanying a sequence of lovely cascades. Fall Crag eventually intervenes and you are obligued to ford and progress with wall close left. Views towards Brothers Water give rise to many a backward glance. Keep company with the beck as the tarn comes into view bear up left (north-west) to cross the popular ridge path working round the right side of the east peak skirting pathless, though not necessarily breathless, round the marshy hollow to mount the sentinel summit.
