Abbeystead, Ward’s Stone and Tarnbrook Fell – Moderate Circular – Jan 2011

Abbeystead, Ward’s Stone and Tarnbrook Fell – Moderate Circular – Jan 2011

This would be a difficult walk at any other time of the year. Luckily the ground was well frozen today but I imagine we’d have been up to our knees at some points – even in Summer.

We tackled Ward’s Stone from Abbeystead and came back along a farm or shooter’s track on Tarnbrook Fell. It was a good four hour walk and was quite tough going, well done Jack and Kev!

Difficulty Moderate
Distance 12 Miles
Time 4 hours
Height 561m
Terrain Mainly excellent farm tracks, but for a few miles we went off track and this was very boggy.  Luckily the ground was frozen so we were able to get across it.
