THREE Wainwright circular walk: High Tove, High Seat, Armboth Fell.
Time: 3 - 4 hours
Parking: at the pay-and-display Armboth Car Park (Grid Ref: NY305172).
|High Seat and the central ridge from above Wythburn Church|
|Walk across the grass towards High Tove|
4. High Tove (1690') is really just a slight rise in the long central ridge but, nevertheless, boasts a prominent summit cairn.
|Follow the fence to the top of High Seat|
8. The summit has a Ordnance Survey column and, in late summer, is covered in heather.
10. If you are harbouring any thoughts of continuing along the ridge towards Bleaberry Fell, take heed of Wainwright's warning that the boggy conditions make this "a walk to wish on one's worst enemy, especially after rain" ! To add an additional "Wainwright" to your day, it's best to retrace your steps across the peat hags to High Tove and, from there, follow a path across the grass south-east to Armboth Fell (1570').
