Lords Seat title for any ultimate peak amongst the clouds, and while the modest Lakeland fell of this name hardly aspires to the notability it suggests it is a pleasing recognition of the commanding position and superior height of this central point in the distinctive group of fells compromising Thornthwaite Forest, Between Bassenthwaite Lake and Whinlatter Pass.
