Great Ewe Fell, Crosby Garrett, Coast to Coast

Great Ewe Fell, at 365 metres, rises steeply and prominently above the Coast to Coast path as it sprawls at the edge of the small farmed area above Brownber and Newbiggin on Lune, keeping to the edge of the Fell until reaching Begin Hill.

Great Ewe Fell is a hilltop on Crosby Garrett Fell, and has a sister hilltop, Little Ewe Fell which rises to 353 metres. The deep ravine of Smardale lies only a mile east of Great Ewe Fell.

Coast to Coast walkers approach Great Ewe Fell from a track leading around a walled area of cultivated land surrounding Brownber. On the north western side of the wall is a reservoir standing solitary and domed in isolation. /At the side of the walled enclosure, close to the reservoir, the path leads east along the foot of the fell, passing close to Ewefell Mire, an area of rough wet tufts of grass. The reservoir is quite mysterious looking when viewed unexpectedly through mist.

After passing around the foot of the fell, and continuing to abide by the walled enclosure as it circles down towards Smardale, the distant hills of the Pennines come into view, whilst in the foreground there is a noticeable dip in the hills beyond the wall, signifying the Smardale valley.
