Great Dodd

Overview
Height: 2,807 Feet - 857 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 342 206

Ordnance Survey: OL5

Great Dodd, well named, is the most extensive of the fells in the Helvellyn range. To the north-east, its long sprawling slopes fall away gradually in an undulating wilderness of grass to the old coach road; beyond is a wide expance of uncultivated marshland, not at all characteristic of Lakeland and of no appeal to walkers
