List of Hewitts and Nuttalls in England
|600 m prominences||600 m +|
|2,000 foot Marilyns||150 – 599 m|
|Hewitts||30 – 149 m|
|Nuttalls||15 – 29 m|
This is a list of mountains in England over 2,000 feet.
Nuttalls are hills in England and Wales that are at least 2,000 feet (610 metres) high with a relative height of at least 15 metres (49.2 feet). The list was compiled by John and Anne Nuttall and published in The Mountains of England & Wales.
Hewitts are hills in England, Wales and Ireland that are at least 2,000 feet high with a relative height of at least 30 m. This list was compiled by Alan Dawson and originally published in The Relative Hills of Britain under the name Sweats. The list was subsequently renamed Hewitts, updated, and published in The Hewitts and Marilyns of England.
Other than the inclusion of Ireland, the only difference between Nuttalls and Hewitts is that hills with a relative height between 15 and 30 m are Nuttalls but not Hewitts. This corresponds to roughly a quarter of all Nuttalls, and the exclusion of these least prominent Nuttalls was one of the reasons why the list of Hewitts was produced.
In the tables below, rows have been coloured according to which list(s) the hills are on. Hills that are additionally Marilyns or that are on the list of hills with a 600 m drop are also distinguished. In the parent column, the prominence parent is used where possible. The prominence parent of a peak can be found by dividing the island or region in question into territories by tracing the runoff from the key col of every higher peak in the region. The prominence parent is the higher peak in whose territory the original peak resides.
There are 254 Nuttalls on the list, of which 179 are Hewitts, and 51 are Marilyns.

- List of hills in the Lake District, which applies the 30m drop criterion below 2000 ft in height.
- ^1 Honister Crag was discovered to have the enough relative height to qualify as a Nuttall after publication of the book.
- ^2 Birks Fell was resurveyed in 2006 and discovered to be 610 m and not 608 m as previously thought. This not only pushes it over the 2000 ft mark needed for inclusion on these lists, but also raises it above neighbouring Horse Head Moor (609 m), making it a Marilyn.
- ^3 The Black Mountain straddles the English–Welsh border and was formerly listed in The Relative Hills of Britain and the TACit Tables as belonging to both England and Wales. With effect from May 2007, Black Mountain is deemed to be in Wales only for the purposes of lists and databases, and such evidence as exists points that way. The Nuttalls have always listed Black Mountain as being in Wales only.
