Great Dun Fell is the second-highest hill in the Pennine range, United Kingdom, lying two miles south along the watershed from Cross Fell, its higher neighbour. Together with its smaller twin, Little Dun Fell, it forms a stepping-stone for the Pennine Way on its long climb up from Dufton.

Radar station

At the summit, there is a radar station that is operated by NATS and is a key part of the Air Traffic Control system for Northern England and Southern Scotland. A radome containing Primary Surveillance radar (PSR) and Secondary Surveillance Radar antennae, various towers and fencing crown the summit. Alfred Wainwright abhored the old radio station (Removed in the 80's) in his book Pennine Way Companion.

The construction of the radar station has led to the repaving of a tarred road to the summit which in turn led to being Britain's highest road. This road is private and not open to the public.


There are the remains of hushing gulleys on the slopes of the mountain, created during lead mining of the industrial revolution.
