|Walk:||Beacon Hill, Grindleton Fell, The Wife, Old Ned, Fell Side, Skelshaw, Harrop Hall, Harrop Lodge, Little Cross|
|Start Point:||Roadside 2 miles north of Grindleton||Grid Ref:||SD 756 486|
|Weather:||Overcast with a cold breeze|
On my own
|Comments:||The early part of the walk was quite enjoyable but afterwards there was quite a lot of stony farm track and some difficult places to navigate. The route through Harrop Lodge was impassable so I changed the route and returned to the car via the road. Not a route I would wish to repeat.|

Impressive gates at the edge of the plantation
The wife . . .
and Old Ned, disappointing piles of stones that may possibly mark ancient burial grounds
A sunken gate - not easy to navigate
An impressive outdoor entertaining area at Little Cross
