Whinlatter Pass - Geograph - 94472.jpg B5292 Whinlatter Pass Lorton Braithwaite 1043'
Newlands Hause - Geograph - 3689051.jpg Unclassfied Newlands Hause Buttermere Stair 1096'
Old coach road below Clough Head - Geograph - 2299359.jpg Unclassfied Old Coach Road Birkett Mire Dockray 1420' A narrow pass over Matterdale Common.
The Struggle Kirkstone Pass - Geograph - 1051.jpg A592 Kirkstone Pass Ullswater Windermere 1489' A minor road called "The Struggle" forks off at the summit and heads southwest to Ambleside.
Honister Pass - Coppermine - 5711.jpg B5289 Honister Pass Buttermere Rosthwaite 1168'
The road below Side Pike - Geograph - 4053524.jpg Unclassified Blea Tarn Pass Little Langdale Great Langdale
Wrynose Pass - Geograph - 347068.jpg 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.
Hardknott Pass - Geograph - 527753.jpg 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.
Photo-required.png 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.
The road across Birker Fell - Geograph - 3345669.jpg Unclassified Birker Fell Eskdale Dunnerdale 850'
