Started at Kielder castle carpark. Easy trail/forest road to the summit. Last 20m of the summit it started to snow and visibility was less than 10m. Storm shelter was useless because the wind blew straight in the opening. Found a collapsed building with a bit of roof to shelter in. However, after lunch visibility had dropped to 5m and it was still snowing... so decided not to proceed to Peel Fell but headed back the way we came. 30m down and you wouldn't believe the difference in temperature and conditions.Nymeria05/02/2017

1/3 Deadwater Fell - Mid Fell - Peel Fell. Parked in Kielder at the castle car park (4.50 all day parking) and followed the forestry tracks and mountain bike trails to the summit.Stormcrow01/10/2016
Parked near church (now has 'Sold' sign). Bridge, forest tracks and MTB trail. No globe on tower at moment, antennae exposed to the elements, soon to be plastered in snow and ice. Continued to Mid Fell.Aye Jimmy18/09/2016
From track end near Kittythirst all the way to Deadwater Fell and its paraphernalia. From there its was heather bashing to Mid Fell and on to Peel Fell. There is a half decent path down following the border until the track is picked up again. Pleasant walk in good weather.SS17/09/2016
Deadwater Fell, Mid Fell and Peel Fell. Parked in the layby by Kittyhurst Cottage and went up the forestry tracks to Deadwater Fell. They are easy to follow and match the OS map exactly. From there to Mid Fell and then the weather came in. Luckily there are old metal fence posts marking the way to Peel Fell but I didn't fancy descending off piste so retraced my steps. Nearly 4 hours round trip.clivevilla23/10/2015
Parked at NY 60832 96429. Space for half a dozen cars. Followed forest tracks and eventually a black bike run (Skellys Riggin) to the top of Deadwater Fell.Followed fence on right hand side of track down and crossed the continuation of the track and again followed path across Deadwater Moor to Mid Fell. Continued following path to top of Peel Fell. Then down following the border and eventually through forest back onto track. Followed track back to carpark. Track and path all the way. A bit cold and a bit sqelshy. A good walk.MikeM11/10/2015

Jen and my final English Marilyn, and my 1200 P100. With Rob W, Charles E, Alan D, Martin R and Lucy F. Usual layby at Kittyhirst, took the track keeping to the left and the burn line. Broke out the trees at end of track to find a good path with yellow markers now set up the wall line starting down in the cleared forest area. This path continues right round to Deadwater and is very straightforward. Not the struggle others have reported. Great cake and whisky party on top also with height measurement by Alan.nordicstar09/11/2014

With Bev from the road. Well marked tracks.simon and co27/09/2014
With Jo, circular walk from Kielder Youth Hostel: forest tracks onto Deadwater Fell, then across easy moorland to Mid Fell and Peel Fell (two tops), descending by border fence and returning along railway track from Deadwater Station. Weather; cloudy with occasional sunny intervals, surprisingly cold on DWF but mild thereafter, good visibility. Good all round views from each top.amblerbob25/06/2014
