Between the steep Stonthwaite valley and the shallow depression containing Bleatarn Gill rises an indefinite and complex mass of rough undulating ground, a place of craggy and wooden slopes, of heathery tors and mossy swamps and little shy tarns - beautiful labyrinth, a joy to the explorer but the despair of the map-maker.
