List of Marilyns in England
This is a list of the 176 Marilyns in England, which are those peaks that have 150m or more of relative height. For information about the topography of the regions concerned, see Mountains and hills of England.
In the parent column, the prominence parent is used, as opposed to any other definition of 'parent'. The prominence parent of peak A can be found by dividing the island or region in question into territories, by tracing the runoff from the key col of every peak that is more prominent than peak A. The parent is the peak whose territory peak A resides in.
The hills are listed in a single table to aid sortability. In the default ordering, peaks are listed after their parents in a hierarchy. Peaks with Welsh and Scottish parents are placed at the end, followed by those on separate islands.
An asterisk indicates an approximate figure.
^1 Swinside, Lovely Seat, Aconbury Hill, Nine Barrow Down, Swyre Head and Cheriton Hill were all discovered to be Marilyns since the publication of The Relative Hills of Britain but were included in the more recent The Hewitts and Marilyns of England. Lovely Seat was demoted again following a more accurate survey in 2010.
^3 Birks Fell was resurveyed in 2006 and discovered to be 610 m and not 608 m as previously thought. This raises it above neighbouring Horse Head Moor (609 m), making it the Marilyn in place of Horse Head Moor.
