Sale Fell

Situated at the northern end of Bassenthwaite Lake, and the most northern of Wainwright's North Western Fells, Sale Fell has quite a commanding prospect along the valley to Cockermouth as Castle How, the ancient fort site now beside the busy A66, would lay testament to. The stunning views from this modest fell are worthy of the effort.

Whilst we give you separate walks to Sale Fell and its near neighbour Ling Fell the two could be walked in one hit, so to speak. A small parking area at Brumston Bridge, centrally, being the key.

There are a few spaces along the verge between the hamlet of Routenbeck and the church nearing the top of the rise at the end of the footpath on to the fell.
