Miller Moss: English hill is reclassified as a mountain

0

Experts have reclassified a hill a mountain after it was discovered to be 3ft taller that previously believed, the Daily Mail reported.

 For nearly a decade, independent surveyors John Barnard and Graham Jackson have been visiting the British Isles to assess the height of hills that could be close to that of mountains.

Thanks to them Miller Moss, in the Northern Fells of the Lake District, has become the 446th mountain listed in Anne and John Nuttalls' books The Mountains of England and Wales.

"The discovery means the Ordnance Survey (OS) will have to alter its Land Ranger and Explorer maps accordingly and mountain climbers hoping to tick every mountain in the UK off their list will have to add a new one," the report revealed.
