The next fell for us was High Raise. Not a huge distance from Rampsgill Head but on this route it does require a short out and back which was well worth the effort on a morning as nice as this one.
The path running up the side of High Raise is a section of the Roman road across these fells. We talked about this for a while and in the end decided that all the archaeologists and historians are all wrong, and the Romans never used this road at all. After all, why would anyone march an army over here when there's a nice easy valley to walk through. So, common sense tells us that they must have built it for the tourists so the valleys would be quieter for them to walk through.
