Wild Boar Fell

Wild Boar Fell

There's a scene in "Over The Edge" where Charlie is called to Nine Standards Rigg, in the northern-most corner of the Dales National Park, to rendezvous with a jogger who comes looming out of the rain and mist. I couldn't find a photo of the actual Rigg, but this was taken not too far away on Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang Common. (Great names - wish I'd thought of them.) The riggs are presumably the piles of stones and these are similar, if smaller, than the ones at Nine Standards. Their origins are lost in antiquity and some believe they were built by the Romans, but that's probably fanciful. It's an atmospheric place, and, as Charlie says, there are ghosts up there.
