The Lake District is England’s most extensive mountainous region, with over 50 summits above 2500 ft (762m). The region includes England’s highest mountain summit, Scafell Pike, 978m high. The Lake District is located in the north west of England bordered by Scotland to the north and the Irish Sea to the west. Access is generally excellent, being close to several junctions on the nearby M6 motorway. Accommodation is plentiful but, as this is a major tourist area, tends to get booked some months ahead at weekends, especially in the summer. There are numerous campsites and generally, there is little difficulty in finding a place to camp. The region is characterised by steep-sided valleys frequently occupied by a lake or reservoir. Population centres tend to be adjacent to these lakes, often at one end where a river runs over somewhat more gentle land. There is an extensive system of footpaths, generally originating in the villages and running over the numerous passes before striking up hill to the summit. Virtually without exception, summits can be reached by simple hill walking, with no rock climbing required. For the more adventurous, there are many excellent scrambles and there is a considerable quantity of serious rock climbing. Some Lakeland mountains have extremely precipitous edges close to the summit. The classic example is Helvellyn, which has gentle slopes in all directions except to the east where the edge is near vertical for up to 300m. There are fatal accidents every year on these edges. Special care is required when there is considerable snow as unstable cornices can extend a considerable distance beyond the edge. The weather in the Lake District can be very unpredictable and can even vary from one valley to another. Rainfall is around twice the national average, carried on strong south-westerly winds that are frequently gale force on the summits. Many summits have rudimentary shelters on or close to the summit but in busy times these will be fully occupied. Generally, there is no other shelter on the summits. The Lake District National Park Authority has a weather forecast, that is updated twice daily, available on 0844 846 2444. An alternative weather forecast for this SOTA Region can also be found on 09068 500 419. LD-058 Arnside Knott was promoted to Marilyn status in 2005 when research using the OS Digimap Service identified a very low col near to Silverdale. Arnside Knott is now the lowest qualifying summit in England.
