The Hospice on Hampsfell
Hampsfell lies above Grange-over-Sands and features some fine limestone pavement and, at the summit, the Hospice which was constructed in 1846 by the vicar of Cartmel. There is a viewpoint on its roof with a list of sights giving bearings and a viewfinder to help you locate them.
