Walking Log ... Walks including "Ward's Stone"


Ward's Stone
Ward's Stone is the highest fell in the Forest of Bowland. It is also the highest fell that lies completely within Lancashire.

The summit is a long flat plateau and is blessed with two trig points roughly a kilometre apart. Although the majority of the surrounding area is wild "grouse shooting" moorland, both tops sit amongst interesting rock formations, in-particularly the Ward's Stone rock which is a huge boulder near the western trig.

Wonderfully remote, there's a good chance you'll have this fell to yourself if you visit. There are fantastic views from the top of much of the Bowland wilderness and The Dales. Check access before heading this way though as some parts may be closed during grouse hunting season. Also be warned, as this is Bowland, some of the access routes can get horrendously boggy.
