THE OUTLYING FELLS OF LAKELAND | BRANT FELL |

Brant Fell is a hill in the English Lake District, near Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria. It is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.


It reaches 629 feet (192 m). Wainwright's route leaves Bowness along the path of the Dales Way, makes an anticlockwise loop over the viewpoint of Post Knott to the summit, and either returns along the Dales Way or follows a woodland path to Helm Road from where another viewpoint, Biskey Howe, is only a slight detour before continuing down Helm Road to Bowness.


The way to the fell is quite steep and can get a bit muddy but on a clear day the views from the top are certainly worth it though.


The rocks of the summit may be of interest to boulderers being about 6/10 ft. We recommend care with younger children and dogs as some drops from the view point.
