Gragareth

Location: Lancashire
Height: 627 metres (2,057 ft)
Summit Type: Grassy/Boggy
Notable Summit Objects: Trig Point
Description:
Gragareth stands at just 1 metre lower than its neighbour the highest point in Lancashire - Green Hill. The fell is part of a ridge of high ground, much of it over 2,000 feet above sea level, that runs north to south from the village of Dent to the village of Ingleton. The fell itself is a boggy, weather beaten place that makes for an excellent walk. The Three Men of Gragareth - 3 well built cairns that stand on the fell's western edge make for an interesting feature, it is however the views that make walking to the top of this high point a must. The northern views look towards Great Coum, north east looks towards Green Hill and across Kingsdale towards the highest point in North Yorkshire - Whernside. East looks towards Sand Beds Head Pike, south east looks across Twistleton Scars towards Ingleborough. South looks across the fell itself and so the view is obscured, however the views to the south west look towards Leck Fell across the Lancashire countryside towards Morcambe Bay. The western views look across Kirkby Lonsdale and towards the lower edges of Cumbria and on towards the Irish Sea, whilst the north western views look towards the Lake District fells.
