Boggy loop to Westernhope Moor Trig, Black Hill Trig (North of ridge at 559m, not recognised on this site) and Fendrith Hill. Spotted by gamekeeper who had seen me watching an owl and thought I was either a bird surveyor or someone destroying traps (which are apparently on surveillance now). He was satisfied after a chat that I was just visiting the trigs.meltdiceburg16/07/2020

Parked at cattle grid NY 89856 33186 at Swinhope Head. Followed fence line and wall all the way across flat moorland, occasionally very boggy. There and back in 85 minutes. In low cloud all the way.Campbell Singer05/01/2020

From cattle grid at Swinhope Head: Black Hill -> Westernhope Moor -> Outberry Plain. Then retraced steps back to car before attacking hills on other side of the road. Rough ground from Westernhope to Outberry, mainly peat hags, worse on other side of road though.jonglew02/09/2019

From cattle grid on minor road to west. Out and back to Black Hill,Westernhope Moor and Outberry Plain. The walk from Westernhope to Outberry was terrible. In and out and over peat hacs ditches and bogs.mart079708/08/2019

with the dog walked from Swinhope Head GR NY 89839 33173 a layby at the cattle grid heading over to Fendrith Hill passing the top of the sky lifts one a good day you can see this quite boggy and lots of peat hags about summit is a fe meters from the OS trig the headding over the hags to get to the summit of Chapelfell top 2 summits hear and unsure which was the true one to can carry on down the ridge and then head for the road i opted to go down the side of the fell as no visibility could soon see the farm and the road thinking that looks tough trust me the road is miles easier than the walk itself back to the parking spot to refill with water and off over to Westernhope moor this is the boggiest part of the walk stick to the fence and walls unlike meDarren-44318/05/2019

Drove to Newbiggin and took the minor road from there to Swinhope Head. Rain turned to snow as the road climbed to 2,000 feet. There was a three mile out and back walk to Jamesís Hill, also known as Westernhope Moor. Visbility was poor in the snow, but route finding was stratightforward, following the fence to the summit. There were peat hags to negotiate, and in one of them my left leg went straight through snow and was stuck under ice. After a couple of worrying minutes, I managed to hack the snow away with my right foot, and, slightly shaken, walked on to the trig point. The mist started to clear on the descent.peter4lc29/11/2017
