Great Dun Fell

Walks » Walking Log » 2005

Wed 17 Aug 2005

Route: Knock - Great Dun Fell road - Dunfell Hush - Pennine Way - Great Dun Fell - Silverband Mine - Great Dun Fell road - Knock

Distance: 7.75 miles

Ascent: 1,750ft

Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

With: On Own

Notes:

Dry, hazy Summers evening.

I started walking from the end of the public road / start of the bridleway outside the hamlet of Knock at grid reference NY 685 287.

70% of the walk was on tarmac on the road to the radar station at the summit of Great Dun Fell.

The Nuttell's guide to 'The Mountains of England and Wales' (volume 2 - England) suggests that you can drive up the private road and park at NY 714 309, saving a 5.0 mile round trip and 1,250ft of ascent, the road signs suggested otherwise.
