The highest point in the Pennine range with an altitude of 893m, Cross Fell is located at the northern end of the Pennines. It has extensive views of the Lake District, the west coast and also the east coast. The Southern Uplands of Scotland and the Cheviots can also be seen from the summit. On the walk it is possible to see a large amount of wildlife - on the day we were there we saw buzzards, shrikes and ravens on the fell and rabbits in the lower meadows. Good strong boots are advisable and the ability to read an Ordnance Survey map is essential, as fog can come down very quickly and the paths can be quite indistinguishable in places.
