Hedleyhope Fell

UK»England»County Durham»Hedleyhope Fell

Hedleyhope Fell: The Fell is one of the largest examples of mid-altitude heathland in County Durham. This type of heathland occurs between moorland in the uplands and heathland in the lowlands, attracting plants and animals from both.


Heathlands look like a natural and wild habitat but are the result of forest clearance for agriculture around 5,000 years ago. They are typically areas of dwarf shrubs, such as common heather (ling), bell heather, cross-leaved heath and gorse. These plants grow well on nutrient-poor soil.
