About this book

Lakeland Fellranger walking guide by Mark Richards covering 23 summits in the Southern Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks old and new, between Wrynose and Hardknott passes and Harter Fell in the north and Black Combe in the south and Muncaster in the west. The fells run south, on both sides of the beautiful Duddon. The famous Coniston Fells lie to the east and sweeping horizons to the west. 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 Southern Fells. For each of the 23 hills covered, this guide offers a dedicated chapter, with full descriptions of a range of new and old routes, full-colour Harvey maps and clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs. This guide is one of the first 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.
