Visit Upper Eden

The Nine Standards

The iconic Nine Standards Rigg is on the summit of Hartley Fell.

Recent research by Dr. Stephen Walker has proved that the iconic Nine Standards that stand guard over the valley are of considerable age although rebuilt through the centuries.

You may be interested in joining the Friends or the Nine Standards or reading his extensive research. The fittest amongst our visitors climb up to these heights and the Visitor Centre will sell you a leaflet or booklet to find the way and warn you about the changes in weather to be experienced high on “the tops”.
