The South Western Marches, The Lake District, Cumbria, England
A rare location in the United Kingdom where, on a clear day, you can see five countries - England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland & Southern Ireland and the self-governing British Crown dependency, The Isle of Man.
William Wordsworth claimed that the summit of Black Combe offered "the amplest range of unobstructed prospect may be seen that British ground commands."
