Walks on the Howgill Fells

And adjoining fells

Alfred Wainwright (revised by Chris Jesty)


This book was a companion to Walks in Limestone Country, originally published in 1970. Wainwright loved the peace and tranquillity of the Howgill Fells. In his introduction he wrote: ‘As more and more people flee to the countryside for a brief respite from the towns, the opportunities of quiet rural enjoyment are shrinking. … As yet the Howgills are relatively unknown. They are not, and never will be, a popular magnet, and in this lack of general appeal lies their great attraction … Here is a pervading tranquillity. … their greatest appeal must ever be to those who love to walk freely ’over the tops’ and commune with nature in solitude. There is no better place for doing this than the Howgill Fells, bless them.’ Chris Jesty’s revised edition was republished by the Society in 2022, the book being printed in 2 colours with a flexi cover.
