The Thorpe Fell trig point was once reckoned the highest point of the moors between Embsay and and Cracoe. This changed following a survey in June 2008 when it was discovered that Cracoe Fell was in fact slightly higher. As a result Thorpe Fell Top lost its status as a Dewey and a Marilyn.
There is no path leading to the trig point and it is a bit of a bash through the heather to reach it from the track a few hundred yards to the north. The trig point looks rather forlorn and battered and there is little depth to the view, the highlight of which is a distant sighting of Ingleborough.
