The majestic Mid-Western Fells of the English Lake District are held in the triangle of Great Langdale, Borrowdale and Wasdale and are defined by four high passes. Two are pedestrian – Stake and Styhead – and two are motorable – Hardknott and Wrynose. The group coalesces around the mighty Scafells, with fabulous wild dale approaches around the compass, promising rich pickings for the curious fell-wanderer. 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 Central Fells.
For each of the 22 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
• 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.
