This Lakeland Fellranger guide to the Southern Fells of the Lake District, caught beneath Wrynose and Hardknott pases, stretching from Coniston to the sea, provide walkers with a wide variety of possibilities. From the fame of Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam - essential climbs for any walker - to the rocky stretches and wooded hillsides of quieter peaks, the Southern Fells are an often-overlooked secret just beyond the crush of the popular Central Lakes.
What sort of walking awaits? This guide includes descriptions and multiple routes up 23 fells, suitable for walkers of all abilities. From the crags of Swirl How, to the open reaches of Hesk Fell and Great Worm Crag, to the southernmost bastion of the Lakes, Black Combe, the Southern Fells await.
The Southern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Fellrangers mix the perfect balance of inspiration and information as they provide a comprehensive guide to the fells of the English Lake District. In every book, a dedicated chapter covers each fell, with a variety of routes, both time-honoured and undiscovered depicted on Harvey maps. The author's own topos and summit panoramas, not to mention breathtaking photography, enhance the reader's journey, and make sure that any trip to the Southern Fells with a Fellranger in hand is one to remember.
A waterproof PVC cover and ribbon bookmark make this Lakeland Fellranger guide a handy companion in the hills.
Every route is illustrated with HARVEY maps, colour photographs, fellscape diagrams and panorama guides.
A walk and a fell for everyone - with alternative routes, height distance and timing information to tailor-make your ranging.
