The Western Fells comprise two wedge-shaped mountain groups, those between Wast Water and Ennerdale Water, and those between Ennerdale Water and Buttermere/Crummock Water. The area includes 33 Wainwrights, which are described in Book Seven of Alfred Wainwright’s Walking Guide to the Lake District Fells and two additions from the Fellranger guide, making a total of 35.
