With Whar Moor and Fulhope Edge. Parked by FB at NT 8297 1084. Whar Moor easy, Bell Hill easy but now sparsely wooded. Crossing from Bell Hill to Fulhope Edge involved long grass to S of Gable Burn and tussocks to the north. ATV along ridge and off Fulhope Edge - from FB and north, pick this up at NT 83036 10216. From FB best to circuit to east to avoid tussockscarole engel20/07/2019
Parked near Buckham's Bridge which was built in 1955. Direct route to Fulhope Edge then off-piste route across to Bell Hill before heading down to the obvious track to the summit of What Hill. Then return on this track and descent towards Gable Burn which is crossed. Then along towards Blindburn Farm to use the bridge to cross the Coquet just as it started to rain. Ran along the road back to my car.Dugswell210/05/2018
From Whar Moor. Higher tops now in cloud. Nice to see conifers growing at natural densities.Wycombe Wanderer27/08/2017
Contoured round from Fulhope Edge in the mist to arrive at a metal shipping container at edge of trees. Good track from here to within 150m of summit, old demolished cairn in old felled area.Aye Jimmy30/05/2016
Semi wooded hill. Collapsed cairn at summit. Generator not too far away.Adrian08/11/2014
On own. Circular walk from Buckhams Bridge CP - Thirl Moor - Fulhope Edge - Whar Moor - Bell Hill - Tindale Law and back along road 12 miles, 2400ft 6 hours. Ranges closed for lambing so great chance for an extended wander on these hills - saw no-one else all day. Easiest access to summit is via forest track which circles the hill.Radio mast is just south east of the high point.Crib Goch06/05/2014
Good track all the way from Blindburn Bridge (assuming the river is fordable)moorsman22/08/2013
