Big circular walk, parked in Millburn, Walked across fields to Ranbeck and Kirkland, climbing onto Cross Fell on a good path which disappears into a swamp, found the Pennine Way across Cross Fell to Tees Head then bagged Little Dun Fell, Great Dun Fell and out and back to Knock Fell, followed lane to Silverband Mines then followed the very unused and overgrown path back to Millburn. Perfect weather, great Lakeland mountain view to the West and great Pennine moorland View to the East.DanTrig06/09/2015
Overnighted just over the watershed from the source of the s.tyne. walked up past Moor house and out and back to Knock Fell. Then over the Duns to Cross Fell and then out to Round Hill via Gregs Hut. L.d.f. looked a bit of a beastie from g.d.f. but the ascent turned out to be anything but difficult. the col is paved so no squelching. summit like Knock Fell surprisingly flat. a decent windbreak is to be found at the Cross Fell end. A good spot to take stock of your day so far.stig_nest08/08/2015
