Great How

Great How I hear you say....where's that? Its the little bump with the great views adjacent to the Thirlmere dam. Its a "Birkett" as well!

Parking beside the A591 Castle Rock is well seen across the valley, I understand it may soon change its appearance....a huge rockfall is imminent 

A permissive path gives access to the top.
This is the view Northeast from the North top, even in the dull overcast weather today the scene was excellent.

This is from the South top (and the higher) Brown Cove on the left and the Central Fells to the West of Thirlmere

Raven Crag across Thirlmere, not much wind today we could hear climbers on the crag calling.

Almost the full length of Thirlmere is seen from here, the autumn colours are just starting here in the Lakes. We returned to the car by the lakeside path and lane past ridge end Farm.
So there we have it, Great How. A grand way to spend a few hours of anyones day, pick a clear day and see all it has to offer!
