How many named fells are there in Wainwright’s ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’? The index of named fells and summits at the back of the book (page 270) contains 110 named summits. However, eight of them refer to other hills in the list as detailed below.
- Cartmel Fell is the same as Ravens Barrow (page 42)
- Hollow Moor is the summit of Green Quarter Fell (page 14)
- Hooker Crag is the summit of Muncaster fell (page 186)
- Potter Fell appears to be the name given to the hill whose summits are Brunt Knotts and Ulgraves (page 8)
- St Johns Hill is the same as Caermote Hill (page 206)
- Lord's Seat is the summit of Whitbarrow (page 36)
- Williamson's Monument is the same as High Knott (page 18)
- Woodland Fell is the name of the moor of which Yew Bank and Wool Knott are high points (page102)
This reduces the total to 102, a commonly quoted number. I have listed 104 named fells below having made the following deviations from the 'norm'.
- Added Brock Barrow, a nameless summit per AW on the Top O' Selside walk but now clearly marked on the OS 1:25,000 map
- Spliting Newton Fell into two tops to reflect the two walks and two summits visited in the Newton Fell chapter. The northern summit is White Stone and the southern is Dixon Height.
The page number is the first page of the chapter in A. Wainwright's 'The Outlying Fells of Lakeland' published in 1974.
