High Street

So called due to its history of playing host to a Roman road from Penrith to Ambleside, this massive whaleback dominates the scenery of the Eastern Fells, and is home to hill forts and stone circles that attest as much.

Best route: though purists will want to trace its full course, by far the most dramatic approach is up Riggindale Crag, a beautifully linear ridge ascending from easily accessed Mardale Head (NY440110)
