The term “fell” is used in the Lake District to denote a mountain, or strictly speaking, a hill. It comes from the Norwegian word for mountain – “fjell”. The Cumbrian fells have exotic names – such as Glaramara, Helvellyn, Black Combe, Blencathra andFleetwith Pike. Some fells have quite amusing names, such as Great Cockup, Bresty Haw, Catbells, Dollywagon Pike or Shipmman Knotts.
Scafell Pike is the highest of the Lake District hills, at 978 m. (3209 ft.). Most of the top twenty are pictured below.
