Gragareth or Green Hill?
Gragareth lies a couple of hundred yards within Lancashire but is actually part of the Yorkshire Dales – its highest point reaches 627m (2057 ft).
Lancashire Gov’s website claims Leck Fell is the highest point of Lancashire but really Leck Fell refers to the slopes of Gragareth.
There are other sources that claim Green Hill is the highest point and this also lies within Lancashire’s boundaries – its peak climbs to 628m (2060 ft). Green Hill is also listed as Lancashire’s County Top.
Another point worth mentioning is before 1974 the highest point was Coniston Old Man in the Lake District, at 803m (2634 ft). Sadly much of Lancashire disappeared at this time and the hill has belonged to Cumbria since.
