|The summit of Bush Howe leads on towards The Calf|
It is said that a hill figure of a horse is carved into the side Bush Howe, rumoured to be a landmark used by smugglers landing in Morecambe Bay. It's unclear whether the so called 'Black Horse of Bush Howe' is a man-made hill figure or simply a coincidence of nature. Either way, you can see it here and decide for yourself.
From Fell Head, Bush Howe offers a punishing climb after Windscarth Wyke where there is little in the way of a rewarding view on completion. Satisfaction can be gained however, knowing that the route along the ridge is much less strentuous.
