From SD 4063 8328, Whin Brow first then back to the road junc for Newton Fell. One stone wall to negotiate near the summit.jonglew04/12/2018
Ascended from Low Newton via Raven Scar in a gale force east wind. The footpath from the village is not signposted, but can easily be picked up once through the farmyard. As there is a wall to cross, this hill is better ascended from the north.JohnW18/03/2018

After the northern Newton Fells walked on road to Low Newton. Not able to access the FP to East as deep pools of slurry blocked path, walked road instead to lane leading to Moss End Farm.Locals there grudgingly let us through and rejoined path, up easily through grass rake and a wall to Dixon Heights, great views. Then down to col, another wall climb and a ATV track through scrubby broken and bracken ground. After minor tops and cattle a last wall climb to gain the central Newton Fell. Easy train then down through gates to minor road and car nr Pt 157.nordicstar08/12/2016
Good parking spot on minor road to NNE at SD 40632 83278. Handy gate 40m west. Follow track to second gate to gain access land.David Gradwell26/02/2016
From road junction to NE of High Newton. Then back and across to Whin Brow on the other side of the road.Aye Jimmy02/04/2015
Newton Bus stop to Lindale over White Stone (via caravan site), Saskills, Whin Brow, Newton Fell and Dixon Heights.Eddie12/01/2015
Along the ridge from Dixon Height. A few walls to climb but nothing impossible. I descended straight down to Tow Top Road, only one field was a trespass but gates were easily surmountable and gave no problems. A great rocky top and it looks good from below too.Jake99424/12/2014
Wainwright outlying fells route from Lindale (Royal Oak car Park) to DIXON HEIGHTS. Continued down to Tom tarn - Ravens Scar to NEWTON FELL. No rights of way but obviously walked a lot. Lovely Sunny afternoon with distant storm clouds threatening.Hill Wanderer25/05/2014
