About The Northern Fells
The northern Lake District is dominated on its southern fringes by the brooding bulk of Skiddaw, one of only three fells in the Lake District over 3000 feet, and the very distinctive shape of Blencathra with its numerous ridges.
North of these the lakeland hills fall away in altitude in a series of grass-covered fells towards the plains of northern Cumbria. Much quieter than the rest of the Lake District, these fells are still well worth a visit.
