About Lank Rigg

To the south of Ennerdale, Lank Rigg rises to an elevation of 541 m (1,775 ft) and has a prominence of around 111 m (364 ft). It is a relatively remote hill on which Wainwright once hid two shillings, possibly as an inducement to visitors – although this was found very soon after, walkers still occasionally leave coins in his memory. There is an Ordnance Survey triangulation column at the summit; and just to the south, an ancient round cairn. On the south western side of the fell, there are the remains of a sizeable ancient settlement. There are clear views of the coastal plain. Ascents usually begin from various points on the Coldfell road.
