|Start Point:||Roadside in Scorton||Grid Ref:||SD 501 487|
|Distance:||7.7 miles||Ascent:||1,500 feet|
|Weather:||A dry day with some sun and a cold breeze|
|Comments:||From the summit of Nicky Nook we took the path north-east to Fell End. Continuing on to Grizedale Bridge we found a useful bench - in good time for a coffee break. A little road walking was then needed before taking the path to Barnacre Moor and down to Burns Farm. It was then an easy walk past the covered reservoir and through Pedder's Wood before arriving back in Scorton.|
