    Just wondered if anyone knows if there are any small books with info on all the Lakeland fells?

    I was looking for something similar to The Munro Almanac by Cameron McNeish, which has the top 284 odd peaks in Scotland listed and basic info on them, routes, map refs, small maps etc. Something small in size maybe 7x4 inches that only weighs an ounce or so and covers all the peaks in the Lake District showing heights in feet and metrics too?

    I've got all the Wainwright books but was just after something small and light, a take anywhere book.

    Try the Lakeland fells almanac by Bill Birkett I think. It is a tiny book based on his Lakeland Fells coffee table book. It is published by the Munro one I think. It is hardback but very thin. It links the fells together in a series of logical routes. Not all the fells are wainwrights BTW.

    Some of the very best fells are not Wainwrights. Ill Crag for example, as well as Long Crag (Yew Fell), Coniston to name just a couple.It's such a pity as people don't bother ascending these non-Wainwright fells and as a result miss out on some greatLakelandexperiences.
