Comments:

10 walkers set out from The Village Hall car park heading west out of the village. A steady climb out of the village and onto a track passing Old Town Head. Heading across farmland paths we made our way to Eaves House Farm and onto Dove Syke. Maintaining a steady climb we passed Cuttock Clough Farm and Seedalls Farm where we stopped for coffee on Moor Lane. After coffee further climbing up Moor Lane took us out onto Bradford Fell to cross the Fell and onto a lane heading to our highest point on the walk at 1,100ft where we stopped for lunch. A heading due west took us around Tagglesmire another open Fell where the footpath turned right and onto Fell Road, along for about 200yds we then turned right making our loop for the return route beginning at Far Brown Hill. This heading would take us back to our lunch spot where we then started our descent returning for 1 mile along the path we took out. We followed the Lane taking a right turn onto a footpath crossing open farmland and a downhill stroll eventually picking up Green Lane. We followed the Lane all the way back to the Village Hall car park where we had started. A great walk with stunning views thanks to Richard our leader
