Solo from P & D car park in Stainforth. Circular route taking in Smearsett Scar and Feizor Thwaite. I tried but failed to locate the small cairn marking Feizor Thwaite's summit. My trusty OS app showed me at the summit, so it's a bag!ADT23/08/2019

Parking at Little Stainforth very difficult due to yellow lines. However, there is a wonderful cafe there which will permit parking for customers. Alt 220m. Pot of tea and a cream cake for under 4 pound. Path leads alongside farm and through a gate. It then carries straight on at the bend across the pasture. All walls crossed by stiles so you know if you are on the correct route. 4.77 km return to include Smearsett Scar. 90 minutes.moorsman18/02/2017
Great limestone scenery on a sunny October day up and down different paths from the hamlet of Feizor. The hill was the objective of our 15 km walk along little used footpaths with L from our pet sitting cottage at Eldroth on the Bowland Fells to the south (after I had mucked out the horse!)Chris Pearson23/10/2016

Layby near top of Buckhaw Brow opposite a garage. Started up track but must have gone wrong because ended up climbing a lot of walls and fences. Also visited Dead Man's Cave. Small cairn on a 'summit', but summit could be one of several places.Aye Jimmy06/04/2014
