There are 47 mountain rescue teams and eight regional bodies in England and Wales, across eight geographical areas. These areas comprise the Lake District, Mid Pennine, North East, Peak District, Peninsula, Yorkshire Dales, North Wales and South Wales. There are also two associate teams, based in the south west of England. Of course, not all are based in the high mountains. Many cover vast expanses of rolling hills and remote moorland (potentially, equally as wild and treacherous).
