||Hodder Bank Fell, River Hodder, Beatrix Fell
||SD 661 502
||Cool and mostly sunny,
occasional cloud but stayed dry all day
||Members enjoyed the walk which started
at the car park in Dunsop Bridge. From there we joined the banks of
the River Hodder before eventually turning up Fielding Clough and
onto Hodder Bank Fell. We then dropped down to cross Birkett Brook
at Giddy Bridge where we stopped for elevenses before heading on to
Foulscales and down to Newton and the River Hodder.
Lunch was taken on the banks of the Hodder just before Slaidburn
after which we headed through the churchyard and onto the fells once
more towards Pain Hill Moor. Reaching Bull lane we then headed
towards Beatrix before finally reaching the River Dunsop and heading
back to Dunsop Bridge. A very pleasant day's walking.
