hearsay When Edward VII died, 1910, the National Trust purchased King's How, the Bowder Stone and Borrowdale Birches as a memorial. On a rock near the summit is inscribed:-
In loving memory of King Edward VII / Grange Fell is dedicated by his sister Louise / As a sanctuary of rest and peace / Here may all beings gather strength and / Find in scenes of beautiful nature a cause / For gratitude and love to God giving them / Courage and vigour to carry out His Will
