The Eastern Fells includes the greatest single concentrated mass of high ground in Lakeland: a tremendous barrier running north and south, high and steep all along its length, rising to above 3000 feet on Helvellyn – the most-often climbed mountain in the Lake District. Popular resorts such as Ambleside and Grasmere lie in this sector of the fells, as does the beautiful Patterdale valley (the best base, in Wainwright's view, for exploring the area). This second edition of The Eastern Fells by the legendary A. Wainwright 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.

This is the legendary A. Wainwright's guide to his selection of 56 'foothills' in Lakeland, brilliantly revised and updated by Chris Jesty. The outings described here with typical eloquence and humour were chosen by Wainwright with a particular readership in mind: 'those walkers who, because of age or infirmity, must be content with milder expeditions on lesser fells.' This guide is packed with gems of outstanding beauty which you don't have to be super-fit to enjoy: Orrest Head, where Wainwright's love affair with the Lake District began; Scout Scar, 'a pleasure every step of the way'; Beacon Fell, 'the epitome of that appeals to fellwalkers'; and many, many others. All the walks fall within the boundaries of the National Park. In the second edition, the main routes are picked out in red for greater visibility, and parking information is given where possible.
