The Hause - Watermillock Fell - LITTLE MELDRUM. Trickier than I expected since conifers hide the top from the north, plus a nasty fence and no sign of a gate!citygent06/11/2017

Parked a bit N of the church taking the RoW SW until NY 4258 2257 then up steep rough ground to some high ground N of the tarn. Dropped down through conifers, round the jet black water of the tarn and up onto Little Meldrum. On to Great Meldrum. Probably easier to tackle this from Watermillock Fell.jonglew23/07/2017

Came at it from Little Mell South Top through the trees by the little lake which was interesting. There is a path all the way around the trees that I returned on that is easier.simon and co18/06/2015
If travelling from Gowbarrow keep outside of the wood. If travelling from the north beware of logging operations at the end of the private track. They aren't too friendly!moorsman05/03/2015
Cracking walk, parked at Watermillock church and did the 5 tops and came back along the low level path. Saw deer, red squirrel, frozen waterfall and not a lot of people. No pressures and bimbled along at my own leasurely pace taking in the views etc. very snowy and icy, could have done with my crampons for the road and paths! 5 Birketts and 1 Wainright.Mark T04/02/2015
