I'm in the process of updating my website. New walks will be added here as I put them online. The plan over time is to transfer all my old walks to the new site. The old site is still available to enable access to the huge number of previous walks and all the fell information.

Welcome to Andrew Leaney's Lakeland Fells website (launched 22 November 2001), my online walking diary with lots of Lakeland photos.

The Lake District National Park (Lakeland) is in the county of Cumbria in north west England and is for many, including myself, one of the most beautiful places in the World. The guidebooks of Alfred Wainwright (AW) inspire me to explore the Lakeland Fells. This site is a record of my wanderings.

The Lakeland fells are wonderful places to explore, there is always something new to discover as well as old favourites to revisit. There are very few wrong ways to go, just easier and harder options and common and less common routes to follow and places to visit. Over time I hope to continue to add more content to show off the area, covering the “standard” as well as the less obvious routes, fells and tarns.

Enjoy the views and happy fellwandering!


PS. If you decide to follow one of my walks please don't forget to read my small print.

PPS. You may find the odd walk I've done outside the Lakes.
