Sweaty, shirtless early morning ascent after bivvying the night near Charlie High, arriving there 2 hours before the non-firing day started. Next am followed footpath and fence but then climbed steeply up onto Roman Fell by mistake. Great views & saw lots of scattered ordnance but no people.signyred25/05/2019

ACW circuit from Hilton. Roman Fell, Long Fell, Tinside Rigg & Little Fell, then W into Scordale valley. Very quiet on fells, did not see anyone else - quite a pleasant walk, with good views. (13km,600m).ger25/08/2018

Foggy and drizzly but top apparently marked by piece of thick splayed metal, presumably of military origin, stuck in rough grass. Only piece of ammo seen on whole walk. Barites outcrop/mines and limestone pavements nearby. Continued to RomanDenise 01/01/2018
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
With Graham, Tove, Andrew and Steve. From Hilton.ruthatlast01/07/2017
Climbed Long Fell and Tinside Rigg by the bridleway from Hilton on a Sunday Afternoon. Perfect weather and superb views towards Blencathra. No problems following bridleway with posts.BURGESS04/06/2017
Climbed on the way to little felldianepick30/04/2017
Walked on my own from Hilton along Swindale Edge and Christy Bank then over Tinside Rigg, Long Fell and Roman Fell. Dry and pleasant. A bit breezy but the wind wasn't cold so it was fine. The walk up Swindale Edge is great, clear makers all the way. Make sure you check the access days for this fell as it is on Warcop MOD land.flockwatcher30/04/2017
From Hilton Village NY 73537 20761, via Christy Bank Bridle Path and Tinside Rigg Returned by same route.Westdenewalker29/04/2017
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

Found the top more by good luck than judgement. Heavy snow and thick mist reduced visibility to 10 metres .... the photo tells it all!moorsman03/11/2012
On the North Pennines AONB Little Fell access walk. Unaware that this was a Nuttall at the time, but reviewing my GPS log of the day it appears that I went over the summit!alistairpooler14/07/2012
