A nice walk. Parked at the Lead Mining Museum, up the road and onto a grassy ATV track by a grit bin. Easy walking to join a stony track, and then an ATV track heads to the top just past a fence. No idea where the top is, so wandered around all over it trying out the most prominent tussocks.So much more pleasant and interesting than Green Lowther.Gill21/01/2020
