There are literally hundreds of fells throughout the Lake District and all are worth walking. They range in difficulty from those that can be tackled by anyone of reasonable health and vigour to those that only the experienced should attempt.

This is possibly the most beautiful area in the whole of England and should be visited wherever you live. The sights are truly breathtaking.

Almost without exception there are paths over and around these wonders of nature. The number of guide books available bears testament to the fact that this is some of the best walking and hiking country in Europe and even further afield.

Because there are so many tremendous walks and so many good and informative guide books on these fells and mountains I do not attempt here to give more than the briefest details: the photographs will speak for themselves. Here is a selection (more will follow, so keep checking back).

Lake District Search & Mountain Rescue Association (LDSAMRA)
