List of Wainwrights

" (1955–1966). Over two million copies of the "Pictorial Guides" have been sold worldwide since their publication. ["Wainwright guides saved", "BBC News", 13 February 2003, http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/2761445.stm. Retrieved 22 October 2006.]

Visiting all 214 Wainwrights is a common form of peak bagging. The Long Distance Walkers Association maintains a register of walkers who have completed the Wainwrights; in November 2007 there were 459 people on the list, of whom 40 had completed more than once. [ [http://www.ldwa.org.uk/hillwalkers/hillwalkers.php Long Distance Walkers Association – Hill Walkers Register] . Retrieved 7 March 2008.] Dave Hewitt estimates that the total number of completers could be over 50% higher than the LDWA's figure. [Dave Hewitt, "Interlude: A few thoughts on Fellbagging" in Hewitt (ed.), "A Bit of Grit on Haystacks" (Disley: Millrace, 2004), pp. 87–88] The Ramblers Association reported in 2008 that a boy of six years, four months and 27 days had become the youngest person to complete the Wainwrights.

The term is occasionally extended to include the fells mentioned in Wainwright's supplementary volume "The Outlying Fells of Lakeland" (1974), although this article only lists the original 214 fells. The said fells are listed here by book, sorted in descending order of height. See also List of fells in the Lake District for a full list in height order.
