HP is on peat/ sand hag opposite frequently visited trig. Steep grassy, boggy ascent from Dunsop Bridge on a hot, still day. We deserved the rest we took on top to enjoy extensive wild viewsDenise 25/08/2019
Up Permissive path opposite Mellor knoll.Longwojo31/05/2018

Parked at Dunsop Bridge. Road to Hareden Farm, then bridleway S, short diversion to Mellor Knoll, back to bridleway and permissive path to Totridge (some snow on top), back to bridleway and continued S, with short diversion to fine summit of Long Knots.

With Catman.oscarrosie29/11/2016
From Hareden. Tripped on the steep climb and a reed went right up my nose, giving me a minor nosebleed. Breezy, sun and cloud, quite mountainesque for these parts. On to Mellor Knoll.Wycombe Wanderer25/09/2016
Continuation of walk from Mellor Knoll. Dropped down east to a boggy col, then followed a permissive path all the way south-west to the summit. Returned by outward route. With AT and JT.Man of Kernow104/09/2016
Much of the Bowland Fells was once out of bounds as here where the water authorities denied access due to a perceived risk of the public polluting the water of the catchment area. (see the circular walk in Wild Walks which obediently encircles this moor ). A fitting tribute plaque on the trig to legendary fellrunner Bill Smith who died on a solo run across these moors at the age of 75. He produced the 1800 page long epic 'Stud Marks on the Summits' - a history of amateur fellracing 1861 -1983 whcich became the fellrunners bible -which you cant find for love nor money (I once had a copy from our library). He extended the 42 peak Bob Graham route to include 63 peaks under 24 hours.Chris Pearson24/07/2016
With Jo, from Hareden. Bridleway to Mellor Knoll and then permissive path onto Totridge. Weather; sunny, warm, visibility was good if somewhat hazy.amblerbob05/06/2016
Start at phone box, up Burnslack Fell and along top following the wall. Down to coll before Mellor Knoll and back via Lower Fence Wood. Will save Long Knotts for another day. Very wet on top and some cloud.bevandy11403/03/2016
From Hareden via Mellor Knoll.Wheelsy20/06/2015
Started at Sykes Nab - followed Longdon Brook to the castle then ascended though the heather up Fiendale Nab to its head. From here we trek across the peat (following the fence - it is Bowland!)to Fair Snape Fell - open bleak expansive. After bagging the summit we visit the trig then Brown Berry Plain to Totridge (another trig) the down. Good Access - no problemsbriandavies19/04/2015

First dry day in a long time ( and sunny too). Nice walk from Hareden Farm to the top and then down via Hareden Brook.Debs6116/02/2014
A straight up and down from the main Trough of Bowland road. The flatter section of the hill was very wet, the steeper section was very firm underfoot even though I was following the grassy permissive path.JohnStoneham03/02/2014
Ascent from Hareden Farm as part of a round including Long Knots and Mellor Knoll. Very wet underfoot throughout.rb01/01/2014
Parking available at the junction with the Hareden road. If including Mellor Knoll do this one second as it will allow you to cut off the final corner on the way back, saving a considerable distance.moorsman02/10/2013
From Hareden Bridge via Mellor Knoll. Direct ascent up hillside following wall/fence and then a fine zig-zag path for final steep bit.Aye Jimmy30/07/2013
Started NE of Dunsop Bridge SD632511. Circular route Langden Brook - Fiendsdale Head - Totridge. Scenic to start but monotonous peat hags and bogs for much of the rest. Alone.Saggers01/06/2013
From Syke on route to fair Snape Felladrianturner18/08/2012
Walk with Ollie. Very long and tiring. Had to climb out of valley up stream start with no path. Ollie fell in mud. Lots of heather. I fell in mud on descent.MattD201014/04/2012
Parking near Sykes, walked by the river and up to Totridge, the route across to Fair Snape Fell was just a swamp of bog with no signs of a path, probably the worst bog I've ever came across after 8 years of summit-bagging, got to Fair Snape Trig and summit eventually, then headed north across nearly impassable bogs until finally finding workmen putting flagstones down, the path down Bleadale Water clough is newly improved all the way back to Sykes, all in all a good day out.DanTrig13/04/2012
From Chipping after Fair Snape Fell. A lovely summit with great eastwards views and dramatic slopes. Very much enjoyed this one.Jake99414/01/2012
Done on several occasions on local walks.parlick27/11/2011
Parked north of Hareden and used bridleway to collect Mellor Knoll, then continued SE on signed path to Totridge. Dry clear autumnal day. Top either trig or moorland 20-25 metres west of trig. Had a good walk around just in case.Dugswell205/11/2011
From Trough of Bowland through to Langden Castle and ascent of Fair Snape Fell on route to Totridge Fell - returned to parking spot in Trough.knarf06/08/2010
Climbed with Fair Snape Fell. Very difficult terrain, deep ruts and bogs for miles. Ended up rescuing a group of school kids doing their Duke of Edinburgh. Would only attempt again in summer.Lazylizzie14/03/2009
