High Seat, in the dale of
Mallerstang, Cumbria. With a summit at 709 metres it is the fourth highest fellin the Yorkshire Dales(although outside the National Park) - coming behind Whernside, Ingleboroughand Great Shunner Fell. It is in the north-eastern part of the Dales, overlooking the deep trench of Mallerstang, and is usually climbed from this side.
To the south-east is Hugh Seat (whose summit is marked by Lady Anne's Pillar, commemorating Sir Hugh de Morville). And on the opposite (western) side of
MallerstangDale is the more striking (but 2 metres lower) Wild Boar Fell
It is not a Marilyn, having a
relative heightof 112 m, and therefore may be regarded as a subsidiary top of Great Shunner Fell, to the east.
Oddly enough, it is the highest point on the main England east-to-west watershed in the Dales, the three higher
fells being some distance from the watershed. Three great rivers have their origins within a mile of each other in the peat bogs here: the river Eden, the river Swale, and the river Ure.
