I have started this page to record some pictures and information about Beacon Fell. Beacon Fell is a fell located in the southern Lake District of England with an altitude of 255m/836ft. Alfred Wainwright included it in his 8th Pictorial Guide, "The Outlying Fells of Lakeland".
Beacon Tarn and Coniston Water were featured in the winning view (Wastwater) in the television series 'Britain's Favourite View' in September 2007.
I have started a wikipedia page for Beacon Fell which can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beacon_Fell%2C_Cumbria.
Here is a video clip of the view from the top on YouTube.
There has been a logbook which can be found from time to time in the cairn at the top of Beacon Fell - grid reference SD 278 907.
A carved wooden box was placed originally by a family who holiday locally on a regular basis. When this went missing, it was replaced by a tin. This is renewed by various boxes or tins from time to time.
Books are replaced by locals when they are full.
Of particular interest has been the champagne cork left by a honeymooning couple, the comments by the English Touring Opera and the therapeutic effects of walking here.
Selected entries can be found in my Beacon Fell log book blog.
Please feel free to e-mail me with any other comments or questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
www.stridingedge.net also helps to maintain the box.
The blue tin on Beacon Fell is now mentioned in Wainwright’s Outlying Fells (second edition)!
Please note that the tin and log book go missing from time to time.
