  • Overview

    There are 443 summits in England and Wales which reach the height of 2000ft, and it is the ambition of many walkers to climb them all. There are 253 such summits in England, and this book describes how to ascend them all in a series of 58 walks.

    The summits that achieve this height (and rise above their surroundings by at least 50ft) are described by region, from the Lake District to the Chevoits, on to the North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales, and finally to the Peak District and Dartmoor. 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 others have no name on the OS maps.

    All these summits take the walker into some of the most beautiful hillwalking areas of England and provide a lifetime’s challenge and enjoyment.

    A new mountain: Calf Top

    An update to the Ordnance Survey geoid model, which plays a part in determining the height of summits, has led to the birth of a new mountain. Calf Top (SD 664 856) in the Yorkshire Dales previously came in a mere 3/4 of an inch short of the all-important 2,000ft mark. However, the latest revision has amended its height to just 1/10 of an inch over 2,000ft - making it officially a mountain.
