Ordnance Survey: OL4
Wainwright Guidebook: Four

Some fells there are, of respectful height, of distinct merit as viewpoints, and often in fine situations, which never seem to attract or challenge walkers and have no place in fireside memories of Lakeland: they are 'left for another day' habitually passed by, and rarely find mention in or conversation,. Such one is Allen Crags.
