They include some of England's most famous peaks, such as Blencathra, Great Gable and Coniston Old Man in the Lake District, and Kinder Scout in the Peak District, but also some with no name on the OS maps. All these ascents take the walker into some of the most beautiful hillwalking areas of England and provide a lifetime's challenge and enjoyment.
