High Pike, the most northerly of the Lakeland fells over 2,000ft, is one of our very local fells. Like many of the fells in this area it has been extensively mined and Elizabeth I said “Caldbeck Fells are worth all England else”. The summit has an interesting feature – a slate bench. It is also used as a beacon and a fire is lit to celebrate important occasions. There is a fine view of the Solway Firth and the Scottish Border hills.
