Grid references in the tables are also links to StreetMap 1:50000 maps showing the hills, which will open in a new window. Note that the arrow StreetMap draws pointing to the referenced point is approximate and may not align accurately with the numerical reference (which is itself an approximate 6-digit location).

The Memory Map symbols indicate downloadable overlay files that display all the summits on MM mapping. When imported into MM, hovering the mouse over a summit icon will reveal the hill name and height in the cursor readout.

Notes

Since the Outlying Fells book is walk-oriented rather than peak-oriented, producing an accurate list of summits is more complicated than would first appear. Many would say it is not even appropriate, a good point - again we did it only because of the Hillwalkers Register.

The original Turner list had the 102 named summits but not the 12 nameless ones. We have added 2 more tops that are explicitly mentioned in the book but are not in the Turner list (St. John's Hill and Newton Fell South). The various lists are also in need of revision due to errors, some typographical and some where the compiler has misread the map both in heights and grid references. To make matters worse there is a prevalent insistence on using the original heights from the book, some of which are now known to be way off.

In our Outlying Fells list, all disputed grid references and heights we know about have been checked with the Memory-Map Navigator (MM) 1:25000 OS Map, and these rules applied:-

The Supersummits are from an article 'Backyard Everests' by Bernard Beal.
We have updated some of the original heights to match those in Alan Dawson's 'Relative Hills of Britain', but we have not checked the remaining heights as we don't have the information.
Note:- If you have not seen this list before, you might try predicting some of the hills before you look at the tables. An easier exercise is to cover up the right-hand half of the tables so that only the Supersummits are shown, and then try working out from memory the location of the nearest higher ground - it's a good test of your hill knowledge.
