Scafell Pike

With an elevation of 978 m (3,209 ft), Scafell Pike is well-known for being the tallest mountain in England. Scafell Pike is located in the renowned Lake District National Park and makes up part of the Southern Fells, Cumbria. Neighbouring civil parishes of Wasdale, Borrowdale, Eskdale, and Langdale all provide excellent starting points to reach the summit.

Lord Leconfield donated the surrounding land around the peak to the National Trust in 1919 to honour all those who served in the Great War. The summit is made up of rough crags; a large cairn also holds England's highest memorial plaque. The peak is one out of the three climbed when taking part in the popular Three Peaks Challenge.

Track Your Peak Bagging Progress

The historic county tops of the United Kingdom, encompassing the countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, are a diverse range of peaks, varying in both height and difficulty. From a meagre 80 meters at Boring Field in Huntingdonshire to heights of 1,345 meters on Ben Nevis in the Scottish Highlands, you can easily start with the closest one to you in your own county.

Admittedly, some will leave you more breathless than others, but it is a great way to see areas of the UK that you may otherwise neglect to visit.

An incredible feat and a rewarding experience

To help you complete this monumental task of reaching each summit, you can easily track your progress by completing your own personal log table and watch your progress grow through charts.
