Scafell Pike or is the highest mountain in England, at an elevation of 978 metres above sea level. It is located in Lake District National Park, in Cumbria.

Distance: 8 miles

Duration: 6h

Difficulty: 4 (medium hard)

At 978m (3.209 ft) Scafell Pike is the highest peak of England. Funnily enough, it was an error on an Ordnance Survey map which gave Scafell Pike its current name – previously being known as “The Pikes of Sca Fell” in honour of a neighbouring peak, which looks higher from many angles, but which is in fact ten feet lower. The summit was donated to the National Trust in 1919 by Lord Leconfield in memory of the men of the Lake District "who fell for God and King, for freedom, peace and right in the Great War". The Scafell Pike walk and the exhilarating, beautiful and breathtaking view from the top have inspired writers such as Wordsworth, Coleridge, Baines and Wainwright, and on a clear day, you can see the Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Kit list: hat, gloves, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, walking trousers walking boots as may be slippy tea flask.

Regular walking can...

  • fill you with energy and confidence
  • help you beat stress
  • make your heart fitter and strengthen your bones
  • help you keep your weight down

It's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have on a Friday or Saturday night
