Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England and is sometimes confused with the neighbouring but slightly shorter Scafell at 964m to which it is connected by the col of Mickledore. The name Pikes of Sca Fell was originally applied collectively to the peaks now known as Scafell Pike, Ill Crag and Broad Crag which were considered subsidiary tops of Scafell (which looks higher from many angles).
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".
Scafell Pike is one of three British peaks climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge.
