Gowbarrow Fell - Summit and View

Summit and View

The summit of the fell is set back to the north, whilst a second top, generally known as Green Hill (1,522 ft), is nearer to the lake. There are many small knolls spread across the wide plateau, but the prevailing landscape is of tough heather and bog. The top bears a triangulation column with a National Trust plaque and provides good views down Patterdale. Better views of Ullswater can be derived from Green Hill.

Famous quotes containing the words summit and/or view:

    What if it tempt you toward the flood, my lord,
    Or to the dreadful summit of the cliff
    That beetles o’er his base into the sea,
    And there assume some other horrible form
    Which might deprive your sovereignty of reason,
    And draw you into madness?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Thy fair virtue’s force perforce doth move me
    On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
