The Inn Way... series of walking guide books by Mark Reid offer an enjoyable and unique approach to discovering the wonderful countryside of England’s North Country... as well as its wealth of hidden and unspoilt pubs.

The Inn Way - the Ultimate Pub Walks

Discover for yourself the rich and varied landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, North York Moors, Northumberland and Peak District. Inspirational landscapes, beautiful villages, local food and drink, history and heritage, classic country pubs - it's what walking is all about.

Rogan's Seat (672m) & Water Crag (668m)


Rogan's Seat (672m) & Water Crag (668m)

10 mile route from Keld, Upper Swaledale, taking in Rogan's Seat and Water Crag in the Yorkshire Dales. Some people have said that Rogan's Seat is the most boring fell in the country. It isn't. The views are extensive, with the main fell-tops of the Yorkshire Dales all visible including Buckden Pike, Great Whernside and Ingleborough. The vast expanse of moorland and peat hags are of interest. Further north, the summit of Water Crag is superb, with the North Pennines stretching away into the distance. A clear day is a must.

Rogan's Seat: NY 919 031
Water Crag: NY 928 046

Climbed: 21/08/18

Route: Keld, Crackpot Hall, Swinner Gill, High Stone Man, Water Crag (Trig Point), Water Crag (crags), Moor Hen Nest, Raven How, Tarn Rigg, Frith Tarn, Black Moor, Pennine Way, East Stonesdale.

Weather: clear, light breeze, excellent visibility
