Mile High Peaks and Mountains in the UK

Q. Hello!

I was curious if you had a list of the 'Mile High' peaks in England. I'll be staying near the Peak District in July.

Thanks

A. There aren't any peaks in the British Isles (England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales) that are a mile high (i.e. with summits 5,280ft above sea level).

The UK's highest peak is Ben Nevis in Scotland (Walks h100 h137 h154 ) which reaches 4409ft.

Snowdon is the highest peak in Wales (Walks: gw100 gw105 gw107 gw110 gw117 gw126 gw134 gw136 gw140 gw158 gw186 gw198 ) at 3558ft whilst England's Highest peak is Scafell Pike in the Lake District (Walks: c110 c111 c166 c172 c194 c197 c215 c233 c271 c370 c416 c453 c454 ) climbing to 3208ft.

The highest point in the Peak District is Bleaklow Head (Walks: ) at a lowly 2076ft. Indeed, the Peak District only has three summits that can be described as mountains (i.e. over 2000ft). The other two being Kinder Scout (Walks: d135 d186 d201 d240 d296 ) at 2086ft and Higher Shelf Stones (Walks: d122 d172 d236 ) at 2037ft. Whilst the countryside in the Peak District cannot be described as 'mountainous' it is nevertheless very, very beautiful.

We are publishing lists of all 'Mountains' in the British Isles along with downloadable Peak Bagging pdf's on which you can record which ones you've scaled.

Hope this helps
