List of Marilyns in England


List of Marilyns in England

This is a list of the 180 Marilyns in England, which are those peaks that have 150m or more of relative height. [cite book | last=Dawson | first=Alan | year=1992 | title=The Relative Hills of Britain | url=http://bubl.ac.uk/org/tacit/marilyns/ | publisher=Cicerone Press | location=Milnthorpe | id=ISBN 1-85284-068-4] For information about the topography of the regions concerned, see Mountains and hills of England.

In the parent column, the prominence parent is used, as opposed to any other definition of 'parent'. The prominence parent of peak A can be found by dividing the island or region in question into territories, by tracing the runoff from the key col of every peak that is higher than peak A. The parent is the peak whose territory peak A resides in.

Notes

fnb|1 Swinside, Lovely Seat, Aconbury Hill, Nine Barrow Down, Swyre Head and Cheriton Hill have all been discovered to be Marilyns since the publication of "The Relative Hills of Britain" but were included in the more recent "The Hewitts and Marilyns of England". [cite book | title=The Hewitts and Marilyns of England | url=http://bubl.ac.uk/org/tacit/tables/england/ | last=Dawson | first=Alan | id=ISBN 0-9522680-7-8 | publisher=TACit Press | location=Cambuskenneth, Stirling | year=1997]

fnb|2 Arnside Knott has been discovered to be a Marilyn since the publication of "The Hewitts and Marilyns of England" and is therefore not listed in either book. [cite web | url=http://www.rhb.org.uk/updates/up200604.htm | last=Dawson | first=Alan | title=Update to The Relative Hills of Britain | year=2006 | accessdate=2006-10-06]

fnb|3 Birks Fell was resurveyed in 2006 and discovered to be 610 m and not 608 m as previously thought. This raises it above neighbouring Horse Head Moor (609 m), making it the Marilyn in place of Horse Head Moor.
