Dunsop Fell – moderate 6 mile circular – Feb 2011

Dunsop Fell – moderate 6 mile circular – Feb 2011

Our plan today was to walk across Dunsop Fell and drop into Whitendale, then to tackle Whitendale Hanging Stones again (after having to abandon in January because of the snow).

The thing in our way today was last night’s rain. We should have known better really as even the first track onto Dunsop Fell had temporarily turned into a stream. At some points we were up to our knees in Bowland Bog.

When we finally got on top of Dunsop Fell we made the executive decision to divert and tackle Whitendale Hanging Stones in summer.

However, the sun was out and it was still a nice walk.

Difficulty Moderate
Distance 6 Miles
Time 3 hours
Height 430m approx
Terrain This walk is best save for sunny periods in summer, or maybe if there is a frost. Today we were up to our knees in Bowland Bog and had to divert our route
