Overview

Lingmoor Fell and its summit of Brown How lies on the ridge dividing the Langdales. Whilst of no great height, it does provide a wonderful viewpoint for very little effort.

The Fell is in an area formerly heavily quarried but which apart from one that crushes old debris for the supply of roadstone they are now all redundant and overgrown with moorland vegetation.

From the upper slopes views can be gained to the north of Great Langdale and its Pikes. To the west lies Scafell the highest point in England and to the east, Windermere the longest lake.

Route

An interesting route can be had by ascending from below Side Pike which lies above the Great Langdale National Trust campsite, then skirting the rugged south face of Side Pike via a squeeze and following dry stone walls to the high point.

From there you can pass the old quarries above Elterwater, descend through woodlands to follow the Great Langdale Beck back to the campsite. This round of just under 11km makes a great tour.
