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
