Mungrisdale Common, pronounced mun-grize-dl, with emphasis on grize, is a fell in the English Lake District. Although Alfred Wainwright listed it as one of the 214 featured hills in his influential Pictorial Guide to the Lakeland Fells it was his least favourite. He commented that it “has no more pretension to elegance than a pudding that has been sat on”. There is some speculation that Wainwright included the fell in his guide simply as a way to fill space, although this has never been proven. Mungrisdale Common is oddly named as it is a number of miles from Mungrisdale village, which lies in a different river catchment.
