Fellbarrow

Details
Grid Ref NY 132 242
Height 1,363 ft
Fellbarrow is a lovely little fell set on the edge of the Lake District, but with superb views into what you may like to describe as the Lake District proper. More often than not, this fell is joined on a walk with Low Fell on the south end of the ridge. The area between the two of them is a grassy, undulating and good place to explore rather than sticking religiously to the paths.

Route suggestions

Route suggestion: Waterend - Mosser Road - Mosser Fell - Fellbarrow
2 mile / approx 950 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
I'm sure the Mosser Road (pronounced Mozzer) was a busy place at one time, but for whatever reason, it seems to have fallen from regular use at some point in time, and now, is signposted as unfit for cars.

This route includes rather less than one mile of off path walking but this is nothing too drastic. More or less a simple case of heading up hill and eventually you reach the top. The only downside to an otherwise grassy fellside is the bracken found on the lower sections.


 

Route suggestion: Thackthwaite - Fellbarrow
1.3 mile / approx 1000 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
This is the quickest and easiest route to the summit which includes a shortcut from the path up to the ridge. Parking could be difficult in Thackthwaite.
