Birks Fell

Birks FellDescription : Birks Fell is a hill in the Yorkshire Dales, near to Hubberholme in North Yorkshire, England. It is classed as a Marilyn (a hill with topographic prominence of at least 150m). Birks Fell only became an official Marilyn in 2006 as it was resurveyed and discovered to be 610 m and not 608 m as previously thought. This raises it above neighbouring Horse Head Moor (609 m), making it the Marilyn in place of Horse Head Moor. Page:b
