The Southern Fells : Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells Book 4 (Lake District & Cumbria) Hardback

Illustrated by Alfred Wainwright


The Southern Fells include the highest, roughest, grandest fells in Lakeland including the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike.

Wainwright - a fell-walking legend in his own lifetime - knew the terrain and conveyed its grandeur and beauty like nobody else.

In this unique Pictorial Guide, he writes of the glorious curves and simple grandeur of Great Langdale; of Wasdale, 'an emerald amongst sombre hills'; of enchanting Borrowdale; of the sparkling radiance of the Duddon; and of the most delectable valley of all - Eskdale, 'sanctuary of peace and solitude'.

This second edition of The Southern Fells has been brilliantly revised by Chris Jesty, a trained cartographer who worked with Wainwright on some of the maps in his later large-format guides.

All footpaths have been rewalked, all routes checked, all maps and text updated.

Paths and routes have been picked out in red to make them easier to follow, and parking information has been added.

This new edition of the classic walking guide is Wainwright for the 21st century.
