A Few Facts About Bleaberry Fell

Location -
Situated in the central area of the national park two and a half miles south of Keswick Bleaberry Fell is the northernmost top on the ridge that separates the valleys containing the lakes of Derwent Water (Borrowdale) and Thirlmere. This ridge which also contains the fells of High Seat and High Tove is notoriously boggy underfoot but Bleaberry Fell is mostly dry and the heather covered summit gives an excellent all round vista. To the east the fell has the rock faces of Iron Crag and Goat Crags as it falls away towards the Thirlmere valley.

Summit And View -
The top is heather clad and carries a number of cairns. Bleaberry Fell's central position is rewarded by a fine all round view all of the major fell groups being visible. Derwentwater can be brought into sight by moving to the north west cairn.
