The Far Eastern Fells of the Lake District rise beyond the crush of the central Lakes, from Ullswater and Penrith in the north, down to the east of Ambleside and the moorland of Shap. 33 fells are described in this guide, with route variations ensuring that there's potential for walkers of any and all abilities, so the Far Eastern Fells may be enjoyed to their full.
What sort of walking awaits? Long sweeps of grassy ridges on High Street and Grey Crag. Small, rugged peaks around Ullswater and Wansfell outside Ambleside. Craggy fells in heather and scree with waterfalls tumbling over the hillsides up the remote valleys of Kentdale, Martindale and Patterdale. Caudale Moor, Hartsop Dodd, Ill Bell and Yoke may not have the fame of other Lakeland peaks, but walking their rugged hillsides can be unforgettable.
The Far Eastern 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.
