Publisher's Information 2012

The Northern Fells of the Lake District roll north from Keswick in bold sweeps of hillside. They offer a taste of classic fellwalking to those who explore beyond the clutch of the busier peaks. 23 fells are described in this guide, with route variations ensuring that there's potential for walkers of any and all abilities, so the Northern Fells may be enjoyed to their full.

What sort of walking awaits? Broad sweeps of heather-clad fells and an expanse of grass, rock and sky make it the home of a peace and remoteness for ramblers. Summits of high fellwalking ambition such as Skiddaw and Blencathra watch over Keswick, before sprawling north into deep valley basins and moor-like hilltops of Brae Fell, Great Calva, Great Cockup and Knott.

The Northern Fells is part of the eight-volume Lakeland Fellranger series by Mark Richards. Fellrangers mix the perfect balance of inspiration and information as they provide a comprehensive guide to the fells of the English Lake District. In every book, a dedicated chapter covers each fell, with a variety of routes, both time-honoured and undiscovered depicted on Harvey maps. The author's own topos and summit panoramas, not to mention breathtaking photography, enhance the reader's journey, and make sure that any trip to the Northern Fells with a Fellranger in hand is one to remember.

? A waterproof PVC cover and ribbon bookmark make this Lakeland Fellranger guide a handy companion in the hills.
? Every route is illustrated with HARVEY maps, colour photographs, fellscape diagrams and panorama guides.
? A walk and a fell for everyone - with alternative routes, height distance and timing information to tailor-make your ranging.
? Mark up your fells after a day's walk in the fell checklist to chronicle your adventures in the Lakes.

The Northern Fells is just one guide of the eight-part Lakeland Fellranger series, covering a total of 227 fells.
