About this book

A Lakeland Fellranger walking guide by Mark Richards exploring 23 summits in the Northern Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks old and new, between Keswick to the south and Caldbeck to the north. Among the summits featured are the massifs of Skiddaw and Blencathra, and the peace of the more modest fells of High Pike, Great Cockup and Carrock Fell further north.

Author Mark Richards combines his passion for the Lake District and artistic flair with all the information the experienced walker needs to explore and enjoy the Western Fells. For each of the 23 hills covered, this guide offers a dedicated chapter, with full descriptions of a range of both undiscovered and time-honoured routes, full-colour Harvey maps and clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and plenty of inspiring photographs.

This guide is the seventh to be published in Cicerone's 8-volume Lakeland Fellranger series, which provides a comprehensive new guide to the fells of the English Lake District, with a selection of new routes up more than 230 hills.
