Walking the Lake District Fells - Langdale - The Langdale Pikes and Bowfell

Walking the Lake District Fells - Langdale - The Langdale Pikes and Bowfell

Easily accessible from the popular bases of Grasmere and Ambleside, this area offers stunning scenery and fantastic walking, from the 'small but perfectly made' Loughrigg – ideal for a Sunday afternoon hike – to eye-catching Helm Crag ('the Lion and the Lamb'), from the lofty heights of Bowfell to the iconic Langdale Pikes. England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, is also included in this volume.

Unlike other guidebooks which describe a single or limited number of routes to a particular destination, the aim of the Walking the Lake District Fells series is to offer all the options. These are presented as numbered sections which can be combined to create infinite possibilities – from simple ascents to longer ridge routes. You'll find the classics and popular routes alongside less traditional alternatives perfect for the wandering spirit.

The series gives you both the freedom to devise your own routes and the information to make informed decisions, thanks to the clear descriptions of the routes themselves, terrain, hazards, interesting features and safe descent paths should the weather close in. Also included are a handful of classic ridge routes for longer fell days.

Mark Richards' inimitable text is complemented by HARVEY mapping and the author's own beautiful sketch topos and panoramas. Perfect for keen hillwalkers and peak-baggers alike and ideal both for pre-planning and use on the hill, Walking the Lake District Fells is the new incarnation of the Fellranger series, which sees the volumes updated and trimmed to a more practical size. These true connoisseurs' guides are sure to inspire you to get out and explore the beautiful fells of Lakeland.
