Walk: Slean End, Woodacre Pasture, Burns Farm, Moor House, Barnacre Moor, Grizedale Bridge, Holme Wood, Nicky Nook
Start Point: Wyresdale Park Grid Reference: SD 508 490 
Distance: 6.8 miles Ascent: 1,380 feet
Time: 3.5 hours
Weather: Cold but dry and sunny with a bitter wind developing by lunch time
Comments: It's surprising how different a route seems when you do it the opposite way round to normal! It looks like the reservoir near Burns Farm is no longer in use and nearby construction seems to have been going on for a long time. The route was extremely muddy between Woodacre Pasture and Barnacre Moor.
