If you'd of asked me five years ago about completing the Birkett fells I'd have given you a strange look. After completing my Wainwrights for the third time around 2016 I spent the best part of 2017 walking at free will. Not knowing where I was walking until the eleventh hour felt fantastic and I was able to repeat the walks that felt so special to me without a care in the world.

It was around Autumn 2017 when I first started to think seriously about completing the Birketts, something that I'd never done due to enormity of the task. I'm the type of bloke who likes to complete any project that I set myself but completing the Birketts felt such a huge task which would require a mass of dedication and time, the latter of which I have very little of when I'm not on the fells.

The good news was, I had experience of how to deal with large walking projects after completing the Lakeland 2,000 footers in 2015 then my Wainwrights in 30 walks project in 2016. If they taught me anything, it was not to set completion dates but being the bloke that I am I couldn't help myself, I had set myself a task to complete therefore I must complete them. I learned valuable lessons from both these projects which I put into place when I set myself up to complete the Outlying Fells which are still being walked at my own free will with no finish date to complete by.

Although I have already summited many of the Birkett fells, I will be resetting the counter to zero and including every one of those fells in this project. All walks will be followed by the same routes Bill Birkett completed them by and each Birkett fell with have its own dedicated fell page along with a full Birkett Fells List Page in alphabetical order. In case any of my readers would like to follow the same route, as much information as always will be displayed on each walk, along with my enthusiasm that I experienced on the day.

Its going to be a long project this one, who's with me.
