Scafell Range from Hardknott Roman Fort


Spent a couple of days exploring this 2nd century Roman fort and surrounding area. A fine example of a Roman parade ground is located to the east of the fort. The photo above is of the north east tower with the Scafell Range in the distance. Travelled to this location via the notorious Hardknott pass … a very steep and narrow road with numerous hairpin bends! The rock formation below is to the north of the fort, also with a view to the Scafell Range.

    • Thanks for your kind words James, I really appreciate it 🙂 Had a great time up at Hardknott … fortunately there was plenty of dramatic light throughout most of the day.

  1. Superb photos – especially the first one. I’d have thought I’d have known that rock formation in your photo but don’t think I’ve ever seen it. You’re a braver man than me driving the Hard Knott Pass – I’ve done it once but won’t do it again!

    • Fortunately, plenty of dramatic light and cloud cover rolled by throughout the day … will be paying a return visit! Thank you for commenting, I really appreciate it.
