Brae Fell

Overview
Height: 1,820 Feet - 586 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 288 351
Area: Northern
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Five

Brae Fell, with a name that seems a marriage of Scottich and Cumbrian influences, is a last outpost of Lakeland in the north and already the typical characteristics of the district are left behind: the outlook is towards the border - and the name is therefore perhaps not inappropriate.
