Lakeland Fellranger walking guide covering 34 summits in the Western Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks between the rivers Irt (Ennerdale) to the west and Cocker (Crummockwater / Buttermere) to the east.
Among the summits features are fells such as Pillar, High Stile and Haystacks and they shelter wild dales such as Ennerdale and the beautiful lakes of Loweswater and Buttermere.
Each of the 34 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 Western Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Together they provide a comprehensive guide to explore and enjoy the fells of the Lake District, with a selection of routes up more than 220 hills.
