Ordnance Survey Triangulation Pillars 

GPS Waypoints of all UK Ordnance Survey Trig. Points


Wainwrights 

Hills & mountains of the Lake District volumes 1-7 of Wainwright's A Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells. (Note the there are no qualification criteria for Wainwrights, the author sometimes gives a summit location that is not the highest point of the fell. Our policy is to take the location intended by Wainwright. The list is not subject to revision.)


Munros 

Scottish Munro Mountains - The Munros are the highest of Scotland's mountains, 282 mountain tops named after the man who first catalogued them, Sir Hugh Munro.
Revised down from 284: Beinn a'Chlaidheimh and Sgurr nan Ceannaichean have been surveyed as less than 3000ft and have been reclassified as Corbetts.

Hills & Mountains list maintained by John and Anne Nuttall and detailed in 'The Mountains of England and Wales' published by Cicerone Press. Includes all the Hewitts


HuMPs

Hills of any height with a drop of at least 100 metres or more on all sides. The name HuMP stands for Hundred Metre Prominence. (All Marilyns are HuMPs) The original source for the HuMPs list was Dr Eric Yeaman's "Handbook of the Scottish Hills", published by Wafaida in 1989. Clem Clements applied Yeaman's original criteria to England and Wales, and christened the results "Yeomans".


Grahams

Graham Mountains: - A Graham is a hill from 610 metres to 761 metres high inclusive (2000-2499 feet), with a drop of at least 150 metres all round. Originally, Scottish hills in this height range were referred to as Elsies (short for Lesser Corbetts).


Donalds

Hills in the Scottish Lowlands at least 2000 feet high. 'Tops' are all elevations with a drop of at least 100 feet (30.48m) on all sides and elevations of sufficient topographical merit with a drop of between 50 and 100 feet. Certain of these are designated 'Hills' according to a complex formula based on both distance and drop.


Wainwrights Vol. 8

Hills around the Lake District listed in Wainwright's Book "Volume 8 The Outlying Fells of Lakeland".


Munro Tops

Scottish 'Tops': - Munro Tops are subsidiary summits to Munros which although meeting the height criterion for a Munro are not deemed to be separate to be distinct Munros.


Deweys

Hills in England, Wales and the Isle of Man at least 500m high with a drop of at least 30m on all sides. The list was published with no upper bound on height, but in practice the name is applied to hills below 610m (2000ft) high, as hills over 610m are usually called Hewitts.


Historic County tops

The highest point within (or sometimes on) the boundary of each county. Based on the traditional list of counties from which people usually take their local cultural identity. Note that these were never abolished, they just ceased to have administrative function.


P30 TUMPs

TUMPs or P30s are hills of any height with a drop of at least 30 metres or more on all sides. The name TUMP stands for Thirty & Upward Metres Prominence.


Dillons

Hills in Ireland at least 2000 feet high published in The Mountains of Ireland. There is no prominence criterion. Both the Dillons and the Hewitts have 212 hills, but 13 hills in each list do not appear in the other.


Y Pedwarau

A ‘Pedwar’ is a hill in Wales between the heights of 400 metres and 499 metres that has a minimum drop of 30 metres. As there are some 447 such hills, and they are over 400 metres high, it seems fitting to name them ‘Y Pedwarau’ , as the Welsh word ‘Pedwar’ translates as ‘Four’.

Synges

Synge's Lakeland Summits - Hills from the book 'The Lakeland Summits' by Tim Synge: covers the whole of the Lake District national park.


Fours

Further details at Europeaklist


Yeamans

The hills listed by Dr Eric Yeaman in his Handbook of the Scottish Hills (Wafaida, 1989). There are 2441 hills, known as Yeamans, in the book, which was the first ever publication to prioritise relative over absolute height in its selection - 100m rise being the main criterion but it also includes hills that are "at least 5km (walking distance) from any higher point". Yeamans were effectively the precursor of the HuMPs list, but based on current data 320 Yeamans are not HuMPs (having less than 100m drop), and 15 are additional to the DoBIH & Tumps datasets.


Lakes Minor Prominences

Minor hills in the Lake District National Park above 300m height, geographically distinctive, with prominence of less than 30m.
More information: LaMPs Document
 
Viewing the LaMPs and P30 TUMPs together is intended to provide a comprehensive listing of "significant" summits within the Lake District National Park, above 300m and/or 30m prominence.
See... www.haroldstreet.org.uk/waypoints/download/?list=tumps&list2=lamps&area=ldnp
 
The LaMPs is a collaborative list. If you find significant summits you consider to be worth adding, please let us know - they can be promoted via the Lakehills forum


Clems

After the publication of Dr Eric Yeaman's Handbook of the Scottish Hills (Wafaida, 1989), E.D. 'Clem' Clements set out to extend Yeaman's criteria to England and Wales. Clem's original handwritten list, completed in the early 1990s, comprised 1284 hills. The process of verifying and digitising this handwritten document took many years and involved numerous contributors, notably Rob Woodall, Myrddyn Phillips, Gary Honey, Gordon Adshead and Iain Cameron; Clem made some additions to the list in 2004 and his list formed the basis for later HuMP research in England and Wales. Clem himself referred to hills on his list as 'Yeomans', but here they have been renamed 'Clems' in his honour by way of remembering the man and recognising his achievement. Of the 1298 Clems listed here, 1290 are already included in the DoBIH and 7 are new.


Dewey's Notable Tops

The "Notable Hill Tops of England and Wales" were included in the Mountain Tables by Michael Dewey published 1995 by Constable, along with his better-known 500m hill list. The Notables are all in England and Wales, generally outside the main high mountain/moor areas.
(52 of the hills in this list are in addition to those hills sourced from the DoBIH, the other 280 link to the DoBIH Hill/Tump details.)
