Walking Log ... Walks including "Fair Snape Fell"


Fair Snape Fell
Fair Snape Fell is the western end of a long line of fells running from Totridge in the east that guard the southern reaches of the Forest of Bowland. The summit is marked with an incredibly large cairn and an OS trig point a few yards to the north. (Note - the true top is half a mile northeast where the path across the top of Saddle Fell begins).

Looking over Bleasedale, Fair Snape's position affords wonderful views towards the coast and the lovely Beacon Fell. The path up from Parlick is well worn and an easy ascent, from anywhere to the east it is considerably more difficult, that side being a huge peat bog.

Fair Snape Fell is the fifth highest peak in the Forest of Bowland, and with Parlick possibly one of the most visited.
