Robinson’s Cairn

​Below Pillar Rock and overlooking the rewilding valley of Ennerdale. The copper plaque says it all:

For the remembrance of John Wilson Robinson of Whinfell Hall in Lorton who died 1907 at Brigham one hundred of his comrades and friend raised this.

He knew and loved as none other these native crags and fells. whence he drew simplicity strength and charm.

“We climb the hill: from end to end of all the landscape underneath, we find no place that does not breathe some gracious memory of our friend.”
