From Hill Top.Wycombe Wanderer17/02/2019
A round from Penny Bridge. High Pastures, over to Colton Heights, Bessy Bank and then Lad's Head. About 11 miles, just right for mid winter.nickywood116/12/2018
4th tump of 12 on a 33.6km circular route from Ulverston, climbing Flan Hill, Town Bank Hill and the Alps, following wall NW then at gate then moving East and then North to intercept track to minor lane and then following this all the way to Smithy Green and Penny Bridge and over the A5092 to Bridge end, curving round to Hill top before cutting in through woodland and then onto the track further up, heading past the Transmission tower and to the Northern Corner for the highest point just within the woodland. Nice spot! Descent by zig-zagging down a steep slope to reach minor road then bridge over the River Crake to take lane past 'Little Dicks' heading for Lad's Head...Dazingdale01/04/2018
From SD 31455 83492 with Rick Nordicstar. The field gate is marked 'private' but we ignored it. Good track through cattle pasture to mast, then hopped a wall/fence to a woodland summit.jonglew09/01/2018
As Ronaldo, with Jon Glew. Good views up the valley and Tumps of the daynordicstar09/01/2018
High Pastures from GR: SD 31278 84453 NB the track from SD 31474 83525 is marked Private.ronaldo33317/11/2017
A 6 Tump circular walk from / to Penny Bridge with Lesley,linking quiet narrow lanes and field footpaths-all very pretty with colourful autumnal leaves. In 2009 the River Crake flooded nearby Spark Bridge (a 1 in 1000 year event). Up and down via the track opposite Hill Top.Chris Pearson29/10/2015
From SE, parked down to SW. Visited all three 100m contours, could be as high.RHW02/08/2015
Parked about 150m NE of Hill Top houses. Then up to mast and into wood behind (barbed wire has helpfully been wrapped at one point). Rocky, mossy ridge within wood with wall and tree at N end.Aye Jimmy04/04/2015
