From Knott, onto Banks. With Beckychrisj196505/03/2023
Car park on minor road running from Torver. Used forestry tracks and paths (but got caught in a mesh of fallen trees at one stage) to move E and gain the track running N by River Lickle. When near top took fairly direct route to Pikes, then Green Pikes, return E and by fence across Caw Moss to climb Lag Bank. On to Banks and return to start. Rather wet, but clouds not too low.RobertP01/01/2023
From The Knott NNE via forest track and then NE across the felled area. Fairly easy going.Moorponder31/12/2022
Parked at the small car park at SD 253 927, down through areas of the wind-blown trees to the forest road at SD 247 929, then south to The Hawk, retraced route took path on left up through wood and left along firebreak to The Knott, back to the path and from its terminus over open country to Lag Bank (Broughton Moor). Then behind the quarry, through deep wet bracken to High Pike Haw, and to the road with a quick revisit to Bracelet Moor. a round trip of 11km with 450m ascent, taking me 3.5 hours.silveracorn_alan18/09/2022

As moorsman. Easy parking by forest track entrance at SD 2570 9314 - Stone steps over wall & then NNW alongside wall/deer fence to Appletree Worth Beck - Over beck, through pedestrian gate in deer fence & continued up alongside wall to wall junction - Over stile & adjacent wooden fencing & then a short walk across to the higher of the two tops. A fair bit of tussock, bramble & dead bracken en route, but also some handy trods. (S)gerrybowes22/12/2020
From Pikes and around N and E forestry boundary then across mossy peaty rough terrain with tree stumps ( but no replanting) to several ridges, hightes determined by Abney. Good views of Quarry, Moreccambe bay and Caw.Thenm onto Bracelet via quarry track.Denise 29/12/2019

From High Park Haw, around outside of boundary of quarry. Very rough ground to quarry wall via ups and downs around rocky ribs through tough bracken with hidden slippery rocks underneath. Gap in wall at SD2567594915 and wooden fencing at SD2517094357 facilitate passage. Lag Bank is the easy one of the three in the forest.Isbjorn15/10/2019
3/6 Parked just up the minor road towards quarry from Torver. Wide parking space about 300 yards up this narrow road. Walk back down a few yards and through gate on left takes you up to Banks. Then work across to High Pike Haw and skirt above Quarry fencing to get to Lag Bank. Then a bit of rough ground crossed walking South then South East to pick up forest tracks and work round to just North of The Knott. Find a ride up to top of here and come back down, then continue on this forest track to join more major track heading down to pick up path to The Hawk. Used little orienteering trail path (clipper number 4) for 100 yards then hand a left to get up to summit of The Hawk easily. Then back crossing bridge Appletree Worth where deserted properties can be seen, then up on footpath to join forest tracks up to the road and picked up Bracelet Moor on way back to car. 5 hours cos of the rough ground.nickywood102/08/2019
Started with Bracelet Moor, then a walk through from south of The Hawk, over Knott and then onto Lag Bank and Banks before crossing the main road and picking up three remaining Torvor Common Tumps. A great amble with Bryher.jenx10/02/2019

With Rick Salter. From end of the quarry road. Contoured round S side of large spoil heap to pick up the wall at SD 2535 9396. Followed some way up before veering off West(ish) for the top. On to The Knott.jonglew28/11/2017
From quarry road, just before main entrance, room to park at roadside. With Jon G, over a deer gate and then through very wet land to wall. Trees shown on map felled, used new fence line by wall to gain height then upward traverse to open hill top. Off to The Knott nextnordicstar28/11/2017
Parked at forest entrance 257,931. Forest tracks till south of Lag Bank then pretty rough going to summit. Returned to track till N of the Knott and further rough going to top. This was a tougher walk than expected - only 4.6m and 1000ft ascent, but took me three hours.Crib Goch24/06/2017
Parking for about 3 cars at the start of the forestry track slightly east of south. A stile leads over the wall and you can follow it to the col alongside the summit. Path occasionally requires care due to sliipery logs/stones and the river crossing, easy under normal crossing, may be problematic after heavy rain. Stile at the top gives access to the summit area.moorsman06/04/2017
