NY3312 : Willie Wife Moor

taken 4 years ago, 5 km from Grasmere, Cumbria, Great Britain

Willie Wife Moor
Willie Wife Moor
This large expanse of moorland is west-south-west of the summit of Dollywaggon Pike. Although it steepens further down, it is a much easier descent route to Dunmail Raise than is Raise Beck. Steel Fell, ahead, is on the other side of Dunmail Raise and the A591.

I have not yet found the origin of this rather unusual name.
