The newly expanded Yorkshire Dales will now stretch westwards to take in the Barbon and Casterton Fells overlooking the Lune Valley, lonely Wild Boar Fell and Mallerstang as well as a huge sweep of limestone country in the Orton Fells while the Northern Howgill Fells will finally enjoy the same protection as their identical southern sisters.
