A Totally New Website

Walk The Lakes

Rising from the ashes of the old website "Walk The Lakes" comes "Peak And Fell Walking" ... a brand new site which has been totally redesigned. Over the next few months all the pages will be populated with photos, walks and lots of detailed information. The main aim is to give the visitor all the information they need for a good days walk whether it be on the Fells and Mountains or down a Valley or Dale.

Detailed Walks

StatisticsEvery walk will show detailed statistics as well as the starting point and the route taken. Obviously there will also be plenty of photographs from each walk ... some showing more than others depending on the weather. Other information will include the Peaks (or Fells) climbed during the walk (with their Peak Classification ... for example Birketts, Marilyns or Wainwrights etc) as well as a detailed OS Map of the route.

Hill Bagging

The Roaches Summit Triangulation PillarWatch this website for up and coming walks. At the moment I am concentrating on completing my first round of Birketts in the Lake District (13 to go), as well as my second round of Wainwrights (29 to go). In between these targets I will be completing other walks in the Peak District and Snowdonia.

Britains National Parks

Lake District National ParkPeak and Fell Walking will show walks from most of Britains National Parks. However the majority will be from the Lake District and the Peak District followed by Snowdonia. These areas are the closest to where I live and therefore have easy access to. There are currently 15 National Parks in England Scotland and Wales. The Peak District was the first designated National Park in 1951. The Lake District, Snowdonia and Dartmoor were created in the same year.

Ashbourne Shrovetide

Ashbourne ShrovetideThis is a unique game played in the Derbyshire town of Ashbourne which lies on the edge of the Peak District National Park. The game has been played annually in the town for hundreds of years although a Roll Of Honour has been kept since 1891. The earliest surviving reference to the game is from 1683 when Charles Cotton wrote in Izaac Walton's 'The Compleat Angler'. People who have "Turned Up" the ball include HRH The Prince of Wales (1928 and 2003), Sir Stanley Matthews (1966), Brian Clough (1975) and Roy McFarland (1982).

Peak Well Dressings

Tissington Well DressingsWell Dressings have been associated with Derbyshire (in the Peak District) for a very long time. The origins of Well Dressings are said to date back to pagan traditions and were undertaken in giving thanks for the purity of the water drawn from certain wells during the period of the Black Death. It has been said to have originated in the village of Tissington in Derbyshire in 1349.
