Route description

haredon_fellI parked up on one of the spots along Trough of Bowland and made my way to Hareden Farm along the road. Whilst on the farm I was tempted to turn left and follow the track to Mellor Knoll, but instead I carried on towards Hareden Fell.  There’s a decent track that follows Hareden Brook and eventually I came to a gate where the reasonable ascent up Hareden Fell begins.

I walked up to the shooting box and then had a five minute rest and came back down.  It was late so I din’t have time to make the route a circular one (coming down the back of Hareden Fell along Langden Brook would have been nice).  I just followed the exact route back to the car.

On my way back down Hareden Fell I lost my camera.  A few days later a very kind Helen and Chris Adams from Lancaster found it and managed to trace me after looking at some wedding photos.  Good to see there are still some decent people out there.  A big thank you to you both.
