2/5 A round from Hellifield Car Park. Up to Hellifield Haw, continue up Haw Lane, fork off left on footpath to climb then access Newton Moor Top Open Access Land, descend North onto the Langber Lane and use footpaths back to Lingber Hill, then down to the road and found a way up to Crane Field Hill by going to the lodge before the farm, through the gate to right of their drive and double back South West to go under first tunnel under railway (this avoids a nasty deep drainage ditch). Back on lane to Hellifield detouring at last railway bridge to pick up Waspber Hill from the West of the hill. 4 hours.nickywood103/02/2024

Plentiful parking down Haw Lane in Hellifield. Continue up the lane, cross the railway and the track continues until the gate on the left. This marks the start of a footpath running north eventually keeping to the east of the river. At the point the path meets the wall descend and cross the river and a wall at the corner and head easily across the moor to the summit. 5.14km return, 90 minutes including Hellifield Haw.moorsman19/10/2018
From south stopping to talk with a couple of long haired golden 'Teddy bear' cuddly looking cows to try and persuade then to have the courage to come close enough to lick my hand. No success though it Enjoyed me talking to it, listened intently and inched a bit forward at one stage to about four feet away then retreated again. Trigged summit. Listened to the Archers.vegibagger17/09/2018

Hellifield Haw - Newton Moor Top from GR: SD 85652 56530ronaldo33326/11/2017
A long 12 mile tramp in spotting drizzle on a grey ' now what?' sort of day with L and Martha the spaniel from Gigglewsick and back following lonely wide drove roads whose side walls nicely contained Martha's zig zagging exploring. Scalebeck Force a highlight framed by autumn leaves and Bookilber Barn - luxurious barn conversion holiday let in the middle of nowhere.L took the dog around the hill on row whilst I went over gate from N , squelched up and over and jogged down SE to easy low wire at broken wall section to rejoin L. Continued to Helifield Haw. A successful test of my recovering torn calf muscle from 3 weeks ago.Chris Pearson26/10/2017

Trig on summit has its own moat. The secret to getting this one is to go through the big steel gates out of the Little Newton farmyard and follow the wall heading north-east rather than use either of the paths to left and right. And do it when the wind isn't blowing.Martin R30/08/2013
Trig on summit has its own moat. Go through the big steel gates out of the Little Newton farmyard and follow the wall heading north-east to a gate in the high wall to access rough moorland rather than use either of the paths to left and right. Wind and rain near summit helped to keep Martin Richardson and I cool on this walk.Dugswell230/08/2013
