Lonscale Fell

June 11 @ 9:00 am 1:00 pm

The summit of Lonscale Fell is the highest point of a ridge running south eastwards from Skiddaw. The area has a long history of human habitation, dating back to the Mesolithic period. Evidence of this can be seen in the form of stone circles, Bronze Age cairns, and Iron Age forts. The area is also rich in archaeological finds from the Roman period, including a Roman fort and a number of coins and pottery fragments.

The area was also an important part of the industrial revolution, producing slate through mining and quarrying. The area is still home to a number of old mine workings and quarries, as well as the remains of a number of engine houses and other structures.

Today, Lonscale Fell is a popular area for walking and climbing, with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. The area is also home to a variety of wildlife and plants, making it a great spot for nature enthusiasts.
