Rough Fell are a hardy breed specific to our immediate locality, The Howgill Fells of the Westmorland Dales and Southern Lakeland. They are a striking sheep, large frame, creamy fleece, curling horns and black face with clean white blaze and muzzle, often flecked with black.

There is little more pleasing to my eye than a flock of Rough Fells heading towards me on my country rambles!
