Lingmell

Overview
Height: 2,624 Feet - 800 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 209 081
Area: Southern
Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Four

Following the general pattern of the fells, Lingmell has a smooth outline to the south and west but exhibits crags and steep rough slopes to the north and east. The distinction is very marked, the ground falling away precipitously from the gentle western rise to the watershed as though severed by a great knife and laying naked a decaying confusion of crags and aretes, screes and boulders.
