Walk: Robinson, Hindscarth, Dale Head, High Spy, Maiden Moor, Cat Bells
Start Point: Chapel Bridge Grid Reference: NY 232 194
Distance: 11 miles Ascent: 3,900 feet
Time: 6.25 hours    
Weather: A dry day with spells of hazy sunshine. A gentle breeze on the tops making very pleasant walking conditions.
Comments: Four walkers joined the leader for this round of the Newland fells. The hazy conditions made the views a little disappointing. However, the consensus of the group was that we had had a good day.
