Lying between Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel, Hampsfell is an elevated ridge of Limestone overlooking the Kent Estuary and Morecambe Bay. It was an easy and pleasant stroll this morning in the sunshine from the Grange Fell road up to the crowning glory on the summit – a tower called The Hospice.
Hampsfell is described in Wainwright’s Hampsfell chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 58.
