Without giving them to long to think about it, try asking any fell walker to name just a handful of the higher fells, not necessarily their favourites; just whatever comes to mind at the time. The chances are that St Sunday Crag will not be among them. Strangely, St Sunday Crag just doesn't seem to draw the same crowds as many of the other fells with similar proportions do; and I can't think why. The fell covers quite a substantial area and as a result, has so much to offer.
With an assortment of routes which would put many other fells to shame, ranging from the straightforward walk up Thornhow End to the wonderfully secluded route through Deepdale and Mossydale, St Sunday Crag simply has it all. Most of the routes are of a decent length, and although not always deserted, the fell is never really over crowded.
As for the name, I've looked in lots of old Lake District books, and some newer ones, yet none of them seen to have anything other than speculation. Perhaps the 'St' in St Sunday was never meant to be a person at all, it could simply be the remains of something totally different. What ever it's origins, I think this is a fantastic name for a fantastic fell.
