Far Eastern Fells

High Street

High Street is a ridge of peaks, the highest point of which is 2719 feet. It can be approached via a rough track from Lower Hartsop to Hayeswater. From below the tarn, a footpath passes over a stile to the top of The Knott. From here the walker can climb up Kidsty Pike for a view of Haweswater and Shap. Doubling back and winding round to the left, it is possible to negotiate a route towards Thornthwaite crag, recognised by the tall column on its summit. This offers a great view of Windermere and many of the mountain groups in the area, including Coniston Old Man, Great Gable and Scafell.

Loadpot Hilll

The cairn on the top of the 2201 feet high summit of Loadpot Hill has a very distinctive shape. There is a Roman road around the flank of the rounded summit, which leads off towards Arthur’s Pike. Climbing up towards this pike offers finer views than those obtained at the top of Loadpot Hill itself. The climb is best taken from somewhere close to the old Martindale Church.
