The 214 Wainwright Fells are those listed in the seven books entitled 'A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells'. The 7 books were written between 1952 and 1965 and contain detailed hand drawings and text which are quite simply magnificent. Even if you are not a keen walker, they make excellent reading.
The books were updated between 2005 and 2011 by the author and illustrator Chris Jesty and the 2nd Edition books display up to date information on footpath and terrain changes.
The Outlying Fells have their own separate edition and detail routes and ascents of those fells around the perimeter of lakeland which some people say are of lesser a challenge than those detailed in the other 7 books, however some are not as easy as they may first appear!
Whilst the books are excellent for planning walks they are no substitute for a map and compass or a GPS and these should always be used in conjunction with the books.
