England's Highest Mountains The Walking Englishman on Facebook The Walking Englishman on You Tube 1000 Mile Walk

Although England is the poor relation on the British Mainland in mountain scale there are still over 200 which reach over 2,000 feet (610 metres) in height. Most, including the 10 highest are located in the north western corner of the country within the Lake District National Park. Over 95% of them are in the north with the majority confined to the Lakes, North Pennines and Yorkshire Dales. Six more are on the border with Scotland in the Cheviot Hills and another six within the Howgill Fells. The North Midlands have just three within the Peak District National Park and the South West can claim just two, High Willhays and Yes Tor, both on Dartmoor. The following table lists every English Mountain over 2,000 feet in height in order from highest to lowest. Locations and Grid References are included. Links lead to information or walks featuring the relevant mountain.

Note -  The list reflects the 'English Nuttalls' classification. This list was compiled by John and Anne Nuttall in their book 'The Mountains in England and Wales, Volume 2 - England'. Their classification includes mountains which are over 2,000 feet high with a rise on all sides of 50 feet. I have selectively excluded lower sub peaks of a named host mountain from this compilation, e.g. Bowfell North Top - an insignificant crag (not even named on OS maps) on the north facing slope of Bowfell. In all there about 10 such omissions.
