The Howgill Fells
Not far from the Lake District and visible from the same stretch of Motorway lies a small mound of hills. Names such as Winder, Brant Fell and The Calf do not capture the imagination like their loftier neighbours. Having said that, The Howgill Fells are beautiful in their own right and well worth a visit.
