Back in May we published a post letting everyone know that the 2012 OMM location was still a mystery, and that the OMM 2012 will not be in the Kielder Forest. Last week (14th July) OMM announced the location of the 2012 OMM to be the Howgills.

Howgill Fells

The Howgills Fells can be found between the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, with southern parts lying within the Dales. The Howgills Fells include 2 Marilyn’s, The Calf at 2,218ft (676m) and Yarlside at 2,096ft (639m) in addition there are also many smaller peaks.

The Howgill Fells are bordered by 2 rivers: Rawthey to the east and Lune to the north and west. Also to the west is the M6 motorway, making the Howgill Fells some of the easiest to get to in the UK.

Just south of the Howgill’s is Sedburgh, this is where the OMM will have it’s headquarters (Sedburgh School).
