Burnbank Fell and Loweswater

The Loweswater Fells are a compact group of fells amongst the Western Fells of the Lake District, all within Cumberland.

The highest of this group is Blake Fell, at 1,880 feet.

Alfred Wainwright compared the Loweswater Fells have been compared to the digits of a hand, [1] radiating out south-westward from the "palm" centred on Loweswater village.

From the west the fells in this vast hand are:

Blake Fell
Gavel Fell from Great Borne
Hen Comb from the footpath in Mosedale
Mellbreak from the Kirkstile Inn, Loweswater
