The Southern Fells which include Scafell Pike (England's highest peak) at 978 metres (3,209 feet) occupy a broad area to the south of Great Langdale, Borrowdale and Wasdale. High and rocky towards the centre of the Lake District the Southern Fells progressively take on a moorland character toward the south west. In the south east are the well known Furness Fells their heavily quarried flanks rising above Coniston Water.

Some of the Southern Fells include Allen Crags, Bowfell, Coniston Old Man, Crinkle Crags, Glaramara, Great End, Lingmell, Pike O'Blisco, Scafell, Scafell Pike, Swirl How and Wetherlam.
