Walking Log ... Walks including "Parlick"


Parlick
Although fairly diminutive in stature, Parlick is one of the bonniest fells you could ever hope to come across. It stands proud above the village of Chipping in Lancashire, the westernly tip of the line of fells running northeast towards Totridge, which guard the southern reaches of the main Bowland massif. From various angles south, east and west, it is almost conical in shape, but is no less splendid seen from Fair Snape Fell to the north. A spur of Fair Snape, it sweeps elegantly south, it's flanks lined in places with deep crevices.

The ascents are unlike most that you will come across in Bowland - very steep, yet free of the peat hags and groughs that plague nearly all of the other fells in this area. Because of this though, it is far busier than the other Bowland peaks - you are unlikely to have Parlick entirely to yourself, for not only walkers and fell runners pass this way, it is also a popular spot for flying types.

Despite only coming in a modest 15th highest of the Bowland fells, it is without doubt the most beautiful ... or maybe a close 2nd to Pendle Hill.
