Easy parking to South.destaylor13/08/2015
A round from Chew Green carpark of Brownhart Law, Hungry Law, Ravens Knowe, Thirl Moor. Much of walk on either quod bike tracks or forest tracks. Footpaths and sheep trods covered most of rest. Section from Browhart Law to Hungry Law would be a nightmare in the wet but relatively dry (at moment) for most of that section but there was the odd bit of wet ground. Tried to cut down through the forest to save time but failed. Planting is newish (5 years old?) and difficult to move through. Followed track to NE of Heart's Toe then to NT77634/05894. New planting abuts old planting. Went up through old planting to Ravens Knowe. Good walking then all the way to Thirl Moor. Dropped down to old round sheep fold at NT80037/08666 and Up hillside to track slanting across the hillside. Followed to road and back to carpark. A good walk.MikeM23/04/2015
Parked at Tow Ford and walked along road to Nether Hindford. Followed track up to Roman forts and back along Dere Street. Bagged trig at the end. Fantastic day and views.BigJ16/04/2015
