Wainwrights

Being based in London it's not particularly easy for me to actually tick off Wainwright fells but on every trip to the Lake District I try to do some more.

This section is broken down to follow the different geographical areas used by Wainwright to divide his Pictorial Guides.

The Central Fells

Sitting between Derwent Water and Borrowdale, and Thurlmere and the Dunmail Raise. Includes such luminaries as the Langdale Pikes and High Raise.

The Eastern Fells

Between the Keswick to Ambleside road, and Ullswater, you'll find the Eastern Fells. Includes Fairfield and Helvellyn.

The Far Eastern Fells

All of Lakeland that is the east of the Kirkstone Pass.

The North Western Fells

Tucked away near Keswick can be found Catbells, Grisedale Pike and more.

The Northern Fells

A large cluster of fells to the north of Keswick.

The Southern Fells

Fells to the of Great Langdale, Borrowdale and Wasdale as well as those around Eskdale.

Like many walkers, I have a set of Wainwright’s guides on my bookshelf. Seven in total. As well as Wainwright’s Pennine Way Companion and his A Coast to Coast Walk, there’s five pictorial guides to the Lake District.
