David Hall - Lake District Walks

Welcome to walkthefells.net

The main aim of this site has been to build up a comprehensive and practical resource dedicated to walking in the English Lake District. I am Cumbrian born and bred, passionate about the Lake District and as a regular walker the website has grown around my personal online walking log. This shows you the Lake District at all times of year, in all weather conditions, and although the site may have a bias towards the fells themselves, it is by no means restricted to the higher places. I’m confident that there is something here for everyone, from the hardened fellwalker to the complete novice out for a short stroll.

Hopefully it does what it says on the tin, and the website is indeed “Delivering the Lake District to your home”

Sorry folks but I’ve had to remove my email address from the website. I was getting far more emails than I have the time to read and reply to.
If you’ve contacted me in the past and still have the address please feel free to email again. To everyone else, all I can do is apologise.
