Major Mountains Of England2013
By Amelia Meyer
While England is a relatively flat country, it certainly is not devoid of impressive mountains and many rolling hill plains. These create a gorgeous topography and a natural allure to the jade-coloured countryside of this land.
The Pennines Mountain Range is one of the most significant of its kind in the country. It is aged at over 300 million years old, making it the oldest group of mountains too. The entire low-lying range, situated in Northern England and Southern Scotland, measures over 400 kilometres or 250 miles in length. They extend from Derbyshire (in the Peak District) to the Cheviot Hills on the border between England and Scotland. The formal definition of the Pennines does not include the Cheviot Hills but, since the Pennine Way passes through the hills several times, they are considered by many to be a part of the range.
