Hartley Birkett

Hartley Birkett, also known as Birkett Hill, is a small domed hill at the foot of Hartley Fell, two miles east of Kirkby Stephen. The Coast to Coast path passes around its western and south flanks en route to the Nine Standards.

Soil creep is very evident from the western flank of the hill, this being its steeper side. The Hill rises to 405 metres and its summit is pocked with mine shafts, from which lead ore was once obtained. Colourful fluorite crystals have also been extracted there.

The mines are collectively known as the Hartley Birkett Mines. The most southerly of these mines is known as Ladthwaite Mine.
