Cross Fell in Cumbria is at 893m the highest point of the Pennines. It was formerly known as Fiend's Fell.

It comprises the greatest contiguous area of highland above 2,000 feet in England, and has on average the longest-lasting snow cover of any location in the country, sometimes persisting all year round in shaded hollows.

A number of disused copper mines are to be seen on its slopes.
