|The cross shelter on Great Shunner Fell|
The Pennine Way passes over its summit and the popularity of this route led to an eroded strip 70 m wide across the moor. This has since has been alleviated from 1996 by the construction of a path made of flagstones.
The summit holds a large cross-shaped windbreak of which the triangulation pillar has been built into the northern 'arm'.
