Yorkshire Three Peaks and Cross Fell, Cumbria

Cross Fell is the highest point in the Pennine Hills of Northern England and the highest point in England outside of the Lake District. Three of the UKs major rivers – the Tyne, the Tees and the Wear, rise on Cross Fell. The summit, at 893 metres, is a stony plateau, part of a 12.5km ridge running North West to South East. On a clear day there are excellent views from the summit across the Eden Valley to the South West to the mountains of the Lake District. On the Northern side of Cross fell there are also fine views across the Solway Firth to the South Uplands of Scotland. So, on reaching the summit you will quite literally feel as though your head is touching the top of England!

The most popular approach for Cross Fell, from Garrigil near Alston, follows the route of the Pennine Way, a large and well constructed path, offering the opportunity to stride out across the moors in the company of some of the prettiest hills and mountains in the UK.

Whernside Ingleborough and Pen-y-ghent form the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks, set amidst the barely tamed wilderness of the Pennines. If you are setting yourselves this popular challenge so that you can gain entry to the much celebrated ‘Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club’, you can plan to walk the three peaks in 12 hours setting our from Horton-in-Ribblesdale; the walk is 24.5 miles long and takes in over 5000 feet (1600 metres) of climbing over varied terrains. Of course, you do not need to do the walk in this time; indeed more leisurely explorations of each of these peaks is very rewarding and can provide even seasoned walkers with plenty of interest and challenge.

Pen-y-ghent, the lowest of the three peaks at 694 metres, is perhaps the one with the one with the most character and is the first to be ascended if you are going to follow the traditional celebrated Yorkshire 3 peaks challenge. The summit of the second peak, Whernside, at 736 metres offers some spectacular views and is a popular site for pot-holers and cavers, being constructed of limestone. The third peak, Ingleborough at 723 metres, with its distinctive flat topped profile is perhaps the best known for both walking and caving – caverns such as those at Gaping Gill and Alum Pot have been created by the streams running off Ingleborough and permeating through the limestone rock of the landscape.

Here you will find campsites in Yorkshire nearby Cross fell and the Yorkshire Three Peaks.
