The summit of Clint's Crags

Clints Crags is a small fell in the north of the Lake District near Blindcrake. It offers a pleasant and easy stroll to the summit from the village.

There is an old limestone quarry near the summit of the hill, this is now an SSSI, being home to a rare species of newt that breeds in the old quarry lakes. The summit is a large expanse of limestone outcrops and pavement, which is also a designated SSSI. The fragile limestone habitat supports various rare calcareous species of flora and fauna.
