English Marilyns Climbed

The 176 English Marilyns are the English hills which have a clear drop of 150m (approximately 500 feet) all round. In other words, they are high relative to the land around them, rather than relative to sea level. They are listed in the book The Relative Hills of Britain by Alan Dawson (Cicerone Press 1992).

Here I show the 115 English Marilyn summits I have so far visited, together with links to photos where available. Additionally, I've visited 3 others (2 in Wales and 1 in Scotland), making 118 altogether - a small tally compared with many people, but we all have to start somewhere!
