Irton Pike

Irton Pike is a hill in the west of the English Lake District, near Santon Bridge, Cumbria. It is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.[1] It reaches 751 feet (229 m) and Wainwright's walk is an anticlockwise circuit from Irton Road station on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, near Eskdale Green. He describes "this tiny top" as "a near-perfect solace for reminscences of past happy days on the higher fells", adding "Climb Irton Pike while ye may!"
