Buckbarrow is a small fell in the English Lake District overlooking the western end of Wastwater. It is featured in Alfred Wainwright’s Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells and is given a height of 1,410 ft approximately; however, the Ordnance Survey and other guide books now give an altitude of 423 m (1,388 ft). The fell’s name means “The hill of the buck or goat”. It is derived either from the Old English word “bucc” meaning buck or the Old Norse word “bokki” meaning a male goat.
