From Tinside in mist which cleared partially by the time I reached the summit. Descent to Swindale and back to Hilton. Last of the English Nuttals - unless they find any more!MichaelF20/10/2017
Well I finished the English Nuttalls on Birks Fell and then I finished them again on Thack Moor. So this my third finish of them on Long Fell. Please if you see any people with equipment measuring hills please tell them politely to go away. I am getting too old to keep finishing these Nuttalls. Attacked this one from Tinsidejohnjennison08/07/2017
Easy walk up Swindale Edge, which was unbelievably well signposted. Left the public ROW at GR 7776 2001. Pretty cloudy on top of Tinside Rigg. Easy jaunt over to Long Fell where I was disconcerted to see a pickup truck parked nearby! Had a little explore of the mines and then picked up the track down. Managed to resist Roman fell which looked very tempting. Lots of shooting and exercises could be seen and heard away in the distance at Warcop base itself which kept me entertained, not that I needed it as the views were good.tsharp07/07/2017

From Hilton w Jenx, free CP. Took the lane at first under Roman Fell and then a Quad track up the broad NW ridge, steepest towards top. Then in mist and on compass to Long Fell and Tinside Rigg. Great decent down the Bridleway and Swindale Beck and then the sublime Scordale.nordicstar08/01/2017
A nice little circuit. Interesting area.jenx08/01/2017
Parked on roadside to Town End leaving Hilton to PROW down Lane End.Followed PROW to the SW as long as was evident on ground then picked up track slightly to the north following it all way to gate with signs for Explosive Hazard & No Unauthorized Person Beyond This Point. Turned right uphill here following fence then contouring round Roman Fell at top of fence until Long Fell and Tinside Rigg came in to view. Visited Long Fell summit and 622m spot height before going on to Tinside Rigg. Descended down PROW along Swindale Beck then turning left on PROW along Scordale Beck to Hilton.SteveSmith05/01/2017
From Hilton out to Swindale Beck then well up row before cutting back to Roman Fell. Followed broad ridge back and over Long Fell and Tinside Rigg (English Nuttalls finished again)! Decided might as well break all the rules and did Little Fell again via the trig point. Great walk and didn't see a single bit of munitions.SS31/12/2016
