From the toad cop below Wold Fell. Down the road to South leading Bridleway. Used this to first gate then followed fence lines all way to near summit trig. 33 years since I had passed nearby of the FP above railway line. After a dry spell this way in was ok however returned by following good line to ventilation shaft and then forest track to road. 1 km stroll back to car. The forest route a lot easier than the moorland plod. With Jenx and Bryhernordicstar06/01/2019

Along private road through forest between Newby Head and Dentdale viaduct then up by path to air shaft then on to ridge fence and trig point/summit. Excellent views, Ingleborough and its limestone base showing the fascination of the Craven area. Followed the fp all the way down to Dentdale viaduct- a nice route, just 10 min up road back to start. Enjoyaable on a sunny day in very dry conditions.pwheeler11/05/2017
