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.
