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".


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.


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’.

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.)
