Lakeland Fellranger Walking Guides by Mark Richards (publisher Cicerone)
Mark Richards. Books by Mark Richards. No trivia or quizzes yet.
The Lake District is a National Park in the north west of the country which, in addition to its lakes , contains a complex range of hills. These are known locally as fells and range from low hills to the highest ground in England. Hundreds of tops exist and many writers have attempted to draw up definitive lists. In doing so the compilers frequently divide the range into smaller areas to aid their description.

The most influential of all such authors was Alfred Wainwright whose Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells series has sold in excess of 2 million copies,  being in print continuously since the first volume was published in Wainwright divided the fells into seven geographical areas, each surrounded by valleys and low passes. While any such division must be arbitrary- and later writers have deviated to a greater or lesser extent from this blueprint-   Wainwright's sevenfold division remains the best known partitioning of the fells into 'sub ranges', each with its own characteristics.
The Southern Fells are one of these divisions, covered by volume 4 of Wainwright's work. Of all Wainwright's boundary decisions, the outer perimeter of the Southern Fells is the most often debated. Wainwright however chose to excise a wide area of fell from his guidebooks, declaring that "south and west from Green Crag the scenery quickly deteriorates.
This summit has therefore been taken as the boundary of fellwalking country for the purposes of this book and the territory southwest omitted from the map". The later Fellranger guides  mirror part of Wainwright's Southern Fells in the curiously named "Mid-Western Fells" volume, and then all of the fells south from Wrynose and Hardknott Passes to the sea in a further volume, "The Southern Fells".

The author, Mark Richards, notes his differences with Wainwright in the introduction. Birkett simply includes everything without comment. The northern boundaries are clear, beginning on the west with Wastwater and rising up beyond the head of Wasdale to Sty Head Pass, the popular walkers' route to Borrowdale.
Across the border on this side are Great Gable and the Western Fells. The boundary continues north to Stonethwaite in Borrowdale, before turning sharply south east along the Langstrath branch of that valley, including the long ridge of Glaramara within the Southern Fells.
At the head of Langstrath the perimeter crosses Stake Pass , another pedestrian route, and sweeps eastward down Great Langdale to Windermere. Although falling within the Southern Fells area, Wainwright makes no mention of the low hills between Coniston and Windermere in the Pictorial Guides. These appear, somewhat illogically, within his Outlying Fells volume.
