Great Cockup

Overview
Height: 1,720 Feet - 526 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 273 333
Area: Northern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Five

Viewed from a distance, Great Cockup appears as a modest but extensive eminence with no obvious summit and nothing calling for closer inspection. First impressions are confirmed by a tour of exploration, the fell underfoot proving no more attractive than the fell at a distance.
