A Lakeland Fellranger walking guide exploring 23 summits in the Northern Fells of the Lake District, including a wide range of walks between Keswick to the south and Caldbeck to the north. Among the summits featured are the massifs of Skiddaw and Blencathra, and the peace of the more modest fells of High Pike, Great Cockup and Carrock Fell further north. Each of the 23 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 Northern 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 more
