Description
Waypoints (0)

Crag Hill at 2,237 ft. offers extensive views of the Howgill Fells beyond Sedbergh. Great Coum is the highest point on the ridge - below is the full length of Dentdale. Lancashire points a long finger into the adjoining counties of Cumbria and Yorkshire along the line of Ease Gill all meeting at Green Hill at the so-called 'County Stone'. Gragareth has extensive views of Ingleborough, Morcambe Bay and the Lakes Fells. The 'Three Men of Gragareth' have been a noticeable landmark for many generations overlooking the valley. Theses are rugged cairns built by lovers of mountains and as such have an individual character. Leck Fell House Farm is the last dwelling in Lancashire and must be the loneliest. At the lower section of Ease Gill is the spectacular  'Ease Gill Kirk' - a deep gorge with vertical wooded cliffs with many caves and pools. There are also fantastically shaped limestone features worn by flood waters. Beyond here the subterrainian waters reappear to become 'Leck Beck'.
