The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Raven Crag - Nannycatch - Coast to Coast path

Raven Crag, Nannycatch, Coast to Coast

Raven Crag is a large stoney outcrop of rock protruding from the eastern edge of Dent Fell as it falls to Nannycatch Gate. It is well known to Coast to Coast walkers, who can hardly miss it as they descend the steep southern slopes of Dent Fell, close to the Crag, and as they then amble below it to Nannycatch Gate, linking the Kirk Beck to the Nannycatch Beck.

The northern edge of the crag faces the path which comes from Cleator Moor via Nannycatch Road. The path separates Dent Fell from the equally sizeable Flat Fell. Nannycatch Valley, running at the foot of Flat Fell is a shallow but beautiful valley through which Coast to Coast walkers make their way en route to Ennerdale Bridge.

At the foot of Raven Crag, on the Nannycatch Beck, is a ford, from where a footpath leads off to climb the opposite slopes to Near Thwaites and into Sillathwaite Wood. Above Sillathwaite Wood are the twin hill tops of Burn Edge, rising to 311 metres, and Bield, rising to 335 metres. The two hills fall sharply on their opposite sides to the River Calder.
