Description - The Mountains of England and Wales: England by John Nuttall
A walking guide to climbing the 253 summits in England which reach the height of 2000ft (Nuttalls) in a series of 58 walks. The summits that achieve this height (and rise above their surroundings by at least 50ft) are described by region, from the Lake District to the Chevoits, on to the North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales, and finally to the Peak District and Dartmoor. They include some of England's most famous peaks, such as Blencathra, Great Gable and Coniston Old Man in the Lake District, and Kinder Scout in the Peak District, but also some with no name on the OS maps. All these ascents take the walker into some of the most beautiful hillwalking areas of England and provide a lifetime's challenge and enjoyment.
