The Southern Fells
Lakeland Fellranger guidebook covering 23 summits in the Southern Fells of the Lake District, with a wide range of ascents. Great fell days are to be had here, between Wrynose and Hardknott passes, Black Combe in the south and Muncaster in the west, with fells including Coniston Old Man, Wetherlam and Stickle Pike.
SeasonsSuitable all-year round walks. Winter walking, even on the lower fells of the Lakes, is not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.
CentresGreat Langdale, Ambleside, Borrowdale, Keswick, Wasdale Head
DifficultyStraightforward, 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 SeeA 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.
