(I created this page as I thought it was worthwhile as this is the highest mountain in England outside the Lake District, it's also a half descent hike. While I have climbed the mountain, I didn't take any pictures (possibly due to the weather being bad). If anyone does have any pictures, they are welcome to upload them, also if anyone is interested in taking over the page let me know.)

Cross Fell is located in the Pennine Hills of North England, it is also the highest point on the Pennine Way trail.
