Hodder Bank Fell walk

Today we met up with Matt from My Pennines for an easy rated walk up to Hodder Bank Fell.  Starting from the car park at Dunsop Bridge there is a brief section along the River Dunsop before meeting the River Hodder and crossing it over a bridge.  We then headed along a well marked track, passing Mossthwaite and Knowlemere Manor, with Sugarloaf in the distance.

We then reached Giddy Bridge and headed up onto Hodder Bank Fell.  There is no trig or cairn on the top – which is also blocked by a wall, but the views from the top are nice, even through the haze.  We headed down along Fielding Clough and walked back along the Hodder, passing the section where the Langden Brook flows into it.

This was a very enjoyable easy walk, perfect for my current health issue, which is temporarily stopping me hitting long distance and high fells.
