Walk route: Knock - Great Dun Fell road - Dunfell Hush - Pennine Way - Great Dun Fell (848m / 2,782ft) - Silverband Mine - Great Dun Fell road - Knock
Distance: 7.75 miles

With: on own
Conditions: 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.
