Fleetwith Pike is a fell in the English Lake District in the county of Cumbria which reaches a height of 2126 feet.
This picture is taken from the edge of Fleetwith Pike.
The view below shows Buttermere Lake and in the distance is Crummock Water.
From a hidden stronghold at Buttermere, it is said that a campaign of running a resistance against the Norman invaders was built and hidden from the enemy.
It was the time of William the Conqueror, and his cruseade "Harrying of the North" in 1069 right up until the early 12th century.
For almost "50 YRS" it's claimed that the Cumbrians fought a guerrilla war against the Normans, attacking supply wagons, ambushing patrols and inflicting great losses upon them in terms of money, material and men.
"Walking these fells for a few years at all times of the year, it is clear to me how a chap with knowledge of this landscape could hide an army".
