Parked at cattle grid at Fairmile Gate but there's what appears to be a purpose made parking area a little further north. Linghaw, Fell Head, Simon's Seat, Docker Knott, Hand Lake, Uldale Head, Blease Fell. A lot of up and down and not really a logical walk, but bagged 6 new tops and revisited a mountain so satisfying from a box ticking perspective.ijpowell21/08/2015
Parked at Fairmile Gate west of Fell Head, followed small sheep paths and crossed brooks just above the field boundaries west of Howgills, got very wet crossing the raging torrent of Chapel Beck but got across and climbed up to Arant Haw (New one for me), followed ridges to Calders and The Calf (I last climbed these in 2005), then climbed over Bush Howe, ascended Fell Head, and descended over Linghaw (all new ones for me), quite cool weather because of high cloud. Great walk.DanTrig15/08/2015
