Parlick and Fair Snape Fells

Sunday 7 September 2014. After the miserable weather of yesterday, today started with more mist and low cloud but this lifted to clear blue skies by mid-morning. The notes for today’s walk suggested that it would be best undertaken in clear conditions and the weather was ideal. I made the 10 mile drive along narrow winding roads to Fell Foot, just north of the village of Chipping. Straight from the car the route went uphill with a climb of nearly 700ft to the top of Parlick. From here there was a vast expanse of open moorland and my route then went down a little before another steadier climb of 400ft took me to the trig point and summit of Fair Snape Fell.

The route back followed a series of zig zags down the side of Fair Snape Fell and then across fields at the foot of the fells back to the car. It was 5.7 miles with 1,500ft of ascent.
