Longlands Fell

Details
Grid Ref NY 276 354
Height 1,580 ft
Apart from Binsey which is somewhat on its own, Longlands Fell is the most northerly of the 'main' Lakeland fell tops. The only lakeland ground found to the north of this summit are the rolling ridges and foothills that rise out of the Caldbeck and Uldale countryside. Longlands is an unassuming little fell which I have to admit I've never actually climbed for it's own sake. Instead, I've always viewed this as being a small portion of a much larger area which as a whole, I get an incredible amount of enjoyment from visiting. Here you'll find peace and quiet, if you're lucky you'll find some seclusion, and if the weather is good you'll find an unexpected sense of satisfaction from foregoing a day on the higher more popular fells.
