List of Wainwright's Outlying Fells

The Outlying Fells of Lakeland circle the fringes of the Lake District but are predominant to the south and east ie: the less remote areas. They are also of less height than most of the ‘main’ fells but many are wonderfully situated, fells in miniature, with interesting views.

The Outlying Fells list is dedicated by Wainwright to ‘The Old Timers of the Fells’.
