In Lake District?
In reply to An Triubhas: Striding Edge and Sharp Edge I guess would be the obvious ones. Both can be done as part of a great day out on the hills.

In reply to An Triubhas:
Custs gully on great end is a fun snow plod, often used as a descent. Central gully at II can be easy if consolidated and the top isn't banked out, avalanche prone though

In reply to An Triubhas:

There are guidebooks available for lakeland winter climbing.

Please bear in mind that many lake district gullies contain rare plants (the Helvellyn range is a SSSI for this reason) and climbing them in anything less than fully frozen conditions (as many people unfortunately are wont to do) is bad for the vegetation, as well as being much less fun.
