Lake District Hiking 1st part; Sightseeing the Windermere Highlands Fell

How to go to Oxenholme;
From London Euston Train Station (where Virgin Trains are located), there's daily train bound to Oxenholme Lake District Station. Travel time is around 3 hours. The Helm is around 400m on foot from the Oxenholme Station. Free admission.

The Helm is a rocky ridge, composed Upper Kirby Moor Flags and has been shaped and scoured by glacial activity. At the summit (185m/607ft above sea level) stands the scheduled ancient monument of Castleheads. It is believed to be an Iron-age hillfort enclosed by banks and ditches. The effort of ascent to the summit is well rewarded by panoramic views of the Lakeland Fells, the Howgills, Morecambe Bay, the Lune Valley and Farleton Fell. Access land on The Helm allows you to explore, on foot, one of the England's most stunning landscapes.

Oxenholme is a village in England just south of the town of Kendal, with which it has begun to merge. It is best known for Oxenholme Lake District railway station on the West Coast Main Line. Because Oxenholme does not have its own church it is technically a hamlet.
