Holme Park Fell (aka Holmepark Fell) was bought by the National Trust in 1999, primarily to preserve these nationally-significant exposures of limestone pavement, which are a type intermediate between the coastal pavements to the west (e.g. Gait Barrow) and sub-montane (upland) pavements to the east (e.g. Ingleborough). The fell is already part of the 2,610 ha Morecambe Bay Pavements SAC and 291 ha Farleton Knott SSSI, and adjacent to the better-known Hutton Roof Crags SSSI.
Quite apart from all that, I think these exposures have a stark beauty.
