Carrock Fell


Carrock Fell (Hillfort) by The Eternal Over 2,174 feet above sea level, this hillfort was built on the summit of Carrock Fell, where an oasis of rock rises above the desert of grass. This must have been a much different landscape when the hillfort was first built, with woodland growing to a much higher altitude than today. I haven't been able to find the date of construction, but it is assumed to be "ancient British". The views are outstanding, and anyone approaching the occupants would have been spotted a long way off.
