Untitled[edit]

I have edited the page to correct the "It is the highest ground in England south of..." details. Previously, this said the Peak District was higher, but the Peak District article says "Kinder Scout 636 m" is the highest point in the Peak District. Therefore, it cannot have anything taller than 703 metres. I have checked the list here: http://www.walkingenglishman.com/mountains.html and as far as I can see, that shows Great Whernside as the first point taller than Black Mountain, within England. Hoping I have not missed anything, since I do not know the mountains of England well enough to be certain. If you know of somewhere taller than 703 metres within England, South of Great Whernside, please correct this article. TarquinWJ (talk) 20:37, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Quoting article, what does this mean:. . . due to the Black Mountains range being of Welsh origin.[2] Now, the Welsh did not make the Black Mountains, I believe it was the forces of nature operating over an extended time period. Perhaps this phrase is explained in the publication mentioned - does anyone else know if it is? Perhaps it is intended to mean that the range is predominantly in Wales.
