The listing is ordered roughly from North to South.
|Image||Road||Name||From||To||Max. Altitude||More Info|
|Unclassfied||Old Coach Road||Birkett Mire||Dockray||1420'||A narrow pass over Matterdale Common.|
|A592||Kirkstone Pass||Ullswater||Windermere||1489'||A minor road called "The Struggle" forks off at the summit and heads southwest to Ambleside.|
|Unclassified||Blea Tarn Pass||Little Langdale||Great Langdale|
|Unclassified||Wrynose Pass||Skelwith Bridge||Cockley Beck||1281'||A wild and bleak pass; the Wrynose and its sister pass Hardknott pose a challenge for even modern cars.|
|Unclassified||Hardknott Pass||Cockley Beck||Eskdale||1291'||Follows almost directly on from the Wrynose Pass. Arguably a more difficult drive owing to its tight hairpin bends on the west side.|
|Unclassified||Strawberry Bank||Bowland Bridge||Newby Bridge||747'||Not a classic pass as such - more a hilly road between two valleys, but due to its steep hairpins on the eastern side, it earns a place on the list.|
