A Lakeland Fellranger walking guide exploring 33 summits in the Far Eastern Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks between Pooley Bridge to the north and Windermere to the south.
Among the summits featured are Hallin Fell and Place Fell on the shores of Ullswater, Kidsty Pike above Haweswater and the fells of the famous Kentmere horseshoe to the south.
Each of the 33 fells has a dedicated chapter describing a plethora of walking routes of differing characters and difficulties (from wide bridleways up to easy scrambles), which can easily be combined to make ascents, descents, traverses or ridge routes.
The chapter begins with a customised Harvey map that illustrates the routes, and shows ridge connections to neighbouring fells to assist in the planning of extended walks.
In many instances pen and ink drawn diagrams show the routes from a given perspective to assist visualisation.
The guidebook is fully illustrated throughout with clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs. The Far Eastern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Together they provide a comprehensive guide to walking in the Lake District, with a selection of routes up more than 220 hills.
