Watson's Dodd

Overview
Height: 2,584 Feet - 789 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 336 195
Area: Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: One

Whoever Mr Watson may have been, it is a very odd Dodd that the selected perpetuate his name. A separate fell it is undoubtably, with boundaries unusually sharply defined on north and south by deep ravines, but although it conforms to normal mountain structure on three sides - west, north and south - it has no eastern flanks at all.
