Lord’s Rake, Scafell, Lake District

Rock Fall

In early 2002, a large slab of rock detached from the western side wall and became wedged across the top of the Rake. This rock had large cracks and was clearly unstable. There was a risk that this rock might fall down the Rake. If this occurred whilst people were in the Rake, they would almost certainly be killed. Over time there have been further rock falls.
