NY6436 : Cuns Fell (539m)

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Townhead, Cumbria, Great Britain

Cuns Fell (539m)
Cuns Fell (539m)
Seen across Ousbydale from the Maiden Way. There are quite a few rounded or peaked summits along the East Fellside (the section of the North Pennines rising above the Eden Valley). Probably the best known are the "pikes" such as Dufton, Knock and Murton. They are formed from different rocks to the more usual sandstones, shales and limestones of the nearby Pennine escarpment. Some are probably volcanic in origin or igneous like the dolerite that rings High Cup and which outcrops all along this part of the fells.
