"A fell (from Old Norse fell, fjall, "mountain") is a high and barren landscape feature, such as a mountain range or moor-covered hills. The term is most often employed in Scandinavia, the Isle of Man, parts of northern England, and Scotland." Also located in Canada, Russia, Spitsbergen, Iceland and Greenland.
In the north of England, and probably in other areas of Norse influence such as Iceland, Norway and Sweden, there is a practice of naming the sides of hills, fells, rather than peaks. A single hill can have different names on different sides. This tag can be used to record such names.
Meaning of this tag overlaps with natural=tundra. It is used as an umbrella tag for a large variety of different areas including in particular natural=heath, natural=grassland, landuse=meadow, natural=scree, natural=bare_rock and natural=wetland + wetland=bog as can be seen in the example images below. These tags are all in much more widespread use and have a better verifiability and more specific meaning so they should be used instead of natural=fell where possible.
