The climate of the Pennines (England)
The Pennines are located in the northern half of England. The mountain range runs through central England. It starts in the north end ends in the Midlands. The area is about 402 kilometers long and it highest peak is at 893 meters. Several rivers rise here. The area consists of peat, hills and rugged peaks. A varying landscape interrupted by Hadrianís Wall. This wall was built by the Romans to keep out the violent Celts.
The mountain range has a sea climate with mild winters and moderate summers. Because the wind usually comes from the west the western side of the mountains is the wettest. The difference in precipitation between the eastern side and the western side is about 200 millimeters per year. Because warm wind from the sea suddenly has to rise there is much rain.
