Little more than a rise on the long Howgill ridge between Sedbergh and its highest point at the Calf.
A westerly outlier to the main Howgill ridge Fell Head is well seen from the M6. It is rarely visited which is why there are often a herd of fell ponies on its pleasant slopes.
A graceful summit the size of a postage stamp caps a steep sided fell to the north of the main Howgills spine.
The summit is north of Yarlside but displays the same characteristics, steep sided, graceful with excellent views particularly to the north.
