Westmorland Fells

Westmorland Fells

Welcome You

The Westmorland Fells follow a limestone ridge that stretches from The Yorkshire Dales toThe Shap Fells encompassing some of the most beautiful landscape in Cumbria. This website aims to introduce newcomers to the area and celebrate some of its finest features. The Orton Valley extends between The Westmorland Fells, The Howgills and Shap Fells.

SHAPED OVER MILLENIA BY ICE, WATER & PEOPLE

Our region is characterised by attractive rolling Carboniferous Fell and Dale topography with exposed limestone scars, screes and karstic pavement that harbours a uniquely specialised plant ecology. In addition to many of the resident and migrant wildlife species found elsewhere in Cumbria, The Westmorland Fells have a specialist subarctic community ecology found only in Limestone Karst habitat.
This pamphlet is an excellent guide from the Limestone Pavement Conservation Group.
