Grit Fell is a lonely hill between Clougha Pike and Ward's Stone in the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire, England. Covered by heather and large bogs, it is difficult walking country. The path from Jubilee Tower car park in the south is difficult and treacherous, with sheer sided bogs 6 feet deep. The path from Clougha Pike in the west is better, but still contains bogs crossed by the odd plank of wood. The path from Ward's Stone is the most treacherous of all. Crossing Cabin Flat, it weaves its way across hidden pools of stagnant water, the presence of which is betrayed by a form of red grass.
The summit is fairly inconspicuous, with only cairns and a wall.

“Yet marked I where the bolt of Cupid fell:
It fell upon a little western flower,
Before, milk-white; now purple with loves wound:
And maidens call it love-in-idleness.”

“Politics is, as it were, the gizzard of society, full of grit and gravel, and the two political parties are its two opposite halves,sometimes split into quarters, it may be, which grind on each other.”
