Product Description

Details

Lakeland Fellranger guidebook covering 35 summits in the Near Eastern Fells of the Lake District, including a variety of walks in the mighty range of hills including Helvellyn, Hart Side and Fairfield, that sit between Ambleside, Ullswater and Grasmere. The area is flanked to the west by Grasmere, Dunmail Raise and Thirlmere, and to the east by Kirkstone Pass, Patterdale and Ullswater.





Each of the 35 fells has a dedicated chapter describing a plethora of walking routes of differing characters and difficulties (from wide bridleways up to easy scrambles), which can easily be combined to make ascents, descents, traverses or ridge routes. The chapter begins with a customised Harvey map that illustrates the routes, and shows ridge connections to neighbouring fells to assist in the planning of extended walks.





In many instances pen and ink drawn diagrams show the routes from a given perspective to assist visualisation. The guidebook is fully illustrated throughout with clear elevation diagrams, detailed summit panoramas and lots of inspiring photographs.





The Near Eastern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Together they provide a comprehensive guide to explore and enjoy the fells of the Lake District, with a selection of routes up more than 220 hills.
