Distance: 4.75 miles
Time: 1 hour 50 minutes
A windy evening.
We followed A. Wainwright's 'Hesk Fell' walk in his book 'The Outlying Fells of Lakeland' [page 140].
There is now a LIVE electric fence running across the northeast flank of Hesk Fell. There was a stile over it on the way up but we did not find one on our return. The result of F&M?
