The Wainwright Fells
The Wainwrights are the 214 fells (hills and mountains) in the Lake District National Park over 1000 feet (With the exeption of Castle Crag at 978 feet) described in Alfred Wainwright's seven-volume "Pictoral Guide To The Lakeland Fells" (1955–1966). Over two million copies of the Pictoral Guides have been sold worldwide since their publication.
Reaching the summit of all 214 Wainwrights is a common form of peak bagging. The Long Distance Walkers Association maintains a register of walkers who have completed the Wainwrights.
