Loadpot Hill

Overview
Height: 2,201 Feet - 671 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 457 181
Area: Far Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Two

The High Street range, narrow waisted at the impressive Straights of Riggindale, thereafter develops buxom girth as it approaches north. Although the western flank continues steep to its extremity on Arthur's Pike, the eastern slopes descend gradually and irresolutely, halting often in wide plateau and covering considerable tract of moorland that is intersected by a succession of deep cut gills.
