Walking the Lake District Fells - Mardale and the Far East

High Street and Kentmere

By Mark Richards

Part of the Walking the Lake District Fells series, this guidebook covers a wide range of routes to 36 Lakeland summits that can be climbed from the Ullswater, Haweswater, Troutbeck, Kentmere and Longsleddale valleys, with highlights including High Street, Place Fell and the Kentmere fells. Suggestions for longer ridge routes are also included.

Seasons

Year-round walking. Winter walks, even on the lower fells, are not for the inexperienced or under-equipped.

Centres

Haweswater, Bampton, Shap, Tebay, Grayrigg, Sadgill/Longsleddale, Kentmere, Troutbeck, Ambleside, Hartsop, Patterdale, Howtown, Pooley Bridge, Askham

Difficulty

Straightforward ascents on sometimes clear, sometimes faint paths, and occasionally pathless terrain, to be used as a basis for readers' own walks. Navigational skills are needed but no specialist equipment. Any scrambling is easy and non-scrambling alternatives are always provided.

Must See

Explore the classic summits in the Lakes such as High Street, Place Fell and the Kentmere fells, and an inspiring introduction to lesser-known Lakeland fells, including the 2016 new additions to the national park, Whinfell Beacon, Grayrigg Forest and Winterscleugh
