There are 443 summits in England and Wales which reach the height of 2000 ft, 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 50 ft) 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.
This 2022 reprint of the 3rd edition, originally published in 2008, features minor updates.

John Nuttall and Anne Nuttall have compiled a list of all the hills over 2000f t in England and Wales, and have constructed walks that take the enthusiast to them on the most enjoyable paths. Together with The Mountains of England and Wales, Volume 1: Wales John and Anne Nuttall have established a tradition of collecting 'Nuttalls' comparable to Munro bagging. When not roaming the hills, they live in Cheshire with their family.
