What Wainwright said:

"Beda fell is the long north east ridge of Angletarn Pikes, narrowing as it descends; but midway it asserts itself, broadens considerably ans rises to a definite summit, Beda Head".

Beda Fell divides the valleys of Boredale and Bannerdale within the Martindale system.

Part way along its ridge, Beda Fell broadens and rises to its summit, the top being named as Beda Head. The top of the ridge is grassy, but the flanks are universally steep with considerable areas of crag. Just north of the summit are Allen Crag, Ewe Crag, Raven Crag and Thrang Crag, falling in tiers from the ridge.

Beda Head is a grassy mound with a small cairn. There is a good view of the surrounding high fells.
