Flatfell Screes, Nannycatch, Coast to Coast

Flat Fell is a twin fell to Dent Fell, which are separated from each other by the Nannycatch Road. The eastern side of Flat Fell falls steeply as a series of scree slopes into the Nannycatch Valley, and is known as the Flatfell Screes. The precipitous slopes of this narrow valley are awe inspiring for Coast to Coast walkers, having not seen anything similar since embarking on the walk at St Bees. Flat Fell only rises to 272 metres but from the path below it gives the impression of being a lot higher.

From Scarny Brow, the minor road running between Calder Bridge and Ennerdale Bridge, there are startling views across to Flat Fell, with the Flatfell Screes falling away very steeply from the shallow dome of the Flat Fell plateau. Although from the valley floor it might seem you are miles from civilisation, in fact Cleator is only 2 miles to the west, Ennerdale Bridge 2 miles to the north, and Egremont 3 miles to the south east.
