Dodd, Dewey, Myrddyn Dewey, Donald Dewey, or Highland Five

A hill is classified as a Dewey if it is a hill or mountain in England or Wales over 500 metres (1640 feet) in altitude, but below 2000 feet (609.6 metres), with a relative height of at least 30 metres (98 feet). The list was originally compiled by Michael Dewey and published in his book Mountain Tables in 1995, hence the name. The list effectively extended the Hewitts (hills over 2000 feet high) down to 500 metres, hence the strange mix of metric and imperial units for the edges of the range.

There have many changes to the original list resulting from remapping and surveying but our list of 425 hills is based on the latest survey from the Database of British and Irish hills.

There are equivalent lists in other areas:

In 2014 a new list was proposed which would rationalise the odd mix of metric and imperial units and making the top limit 600 metres but still being over 500 metres with a relative height of at least 30 metres and any hill in Scotland, Wales, or England in this range is also classified as a Dodd and there are currently 1530 of these.

WalkLakes recognises that hill walking, or walking in the mountains, is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.
