|The summit cairn on Fountains Fell|
The name Fountains derives from ownership of the land in the 13th century by the Cistercian monks of Fountains Abbey (25 miles (40 km) to the east, near Ripon), who used it for sheep grazing.
The Pennine Way crosses Fountains Fell about a third of a mile north of the summit.
