Lakeland Fellranger - Southern Fells

Lakeland Fellranger - Southern Fells

by: Mark Richards
The popular 'Lakeland Fellrangers' series are one of the most comprehensive, up-to-date guides to every path, crag, fell and valley in the Lake District. The area covered in this book, the Southern Fells, is defined to the north by the 'lost' Roman road that crossed Hardknott and Wrynose passes, and led from Eskdale into little Langdale. From here the fells run south, on both sides of the beautiful River Duddon with the famous Coniston fells to the east and sweeping horizons to the west. The area begins impressively upon Harter Fell and ends remotely upon the coastal reaches of Black Combe.
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 underpin the reader's appreciation of these magnificent mountains. The Lakeland Fellrangers series combines the personal and artistic touch found in Wainwright's guides, with everything the modern walker needs. Author Mark Richards was one of Wainwright's protégés and with the Fellranger books he proves he is a worthy successor.
The guide is divided into 23 fell chapters, each of which covers its area comprehensively. They are: Black Combe; Black Fell; Brim Fell; Buckbarrow; Caw; Coniston Old Man; Dow Crag; Great Carrs; Great Worm Crag; Green Crag; Grey Friar; Harter Fell; Hesk Fell; Holme Fell; Muncaster Fell; Stainton Pike; Stickle Pike; Swirl How; Wallowsbarrow Crag; Walna Scar; Wetherlam; Whitfell; Yoadcastle.
