The Eastern Fells include 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).
The Pictorial Guides by A. Wainwright, written half a century ago, have been treasured by generations of walkers. This edition of The Eastern Fells is freshly reproduced from Wainwright's original hand-drawn pages.
