Barbon Low Fell
Ian and I parked beside the road at the northwest corner of Low Barbon Fell. The steep grassy slope soon eased and the view opened up, the Lune Valley spread out below us. Despite living within 6 or 7 miles of here I'd never been on this knobbly top! Lots of minor summits were visited on route to the trig on Brownthwaite, the dizzy height of 437m. The huge cairn above Brownthwaite Pike was passed (and posed on) as we dropped down to the metalled road to Bullpot Farm, then down the bridleway into Barbondale and back along the road to the car passing an Andy Goldsworthy sheepfold on route.
