Archy Styrigg (Gregory Chapel)
Gregory Chapel is a mountain in the Mallerstang valley, and is the central peak of 3 mountains that form the Mallerstang Edge ridge. The boundary between Cumbria and Yorkshire lies directly along this ridge, so it is debatable as to wether the true summit lies within the Eden Valley and Cumbria, or Yorkshire and the Dales.

It is also debatable what the true name of the fell is, with opinion divided roughly equally between Gregory Chapel and Archy Styrigg. The highest point is actually unmarked but a large cairn stands close by, and a few hundred yards south east of this is a larger cairn and small stone shelter.

As with the other mountains in this ridge, it has steep limestone escarpments on the western face with a more gentle gradient eastward. The summit is broad and flat with a classic moorland covering of long tussocky grass and heather. Not many paths, but there is a reasonable one running north to High Seat and South to Hugh Seat.
