About this book

The Western Fells sit within the triangle of Great Gable, Wasdale and Buttermere, defined by the high ground between the rivers Irt and Cocker. Among their number are fells of high fellwalking ambition such as Pillar, High Stile and Haystacks and they shelter wild dales such as Ennerdale and the beautiful lakes of Loweswater and Buttermere.

Each fell has its own dedicated chapter, and the variety of routes on the fell are carefully depicted on HARVEY maps and fellscape diagrams. The scenic qualities of the landscape are illustrated by colour photographs and detailed summit panoramas that help to underpin the reader's appreciation of these magical mountains.

In this guide author Mark Richards combines a personal, artistic touch with all the information the walker needs to explore and enjoy the Western Fells of the English Lake District.
