General Directions (see markers on the route map)

1.) From the car park off Main Street in Sedbergh at map ref. SD659922, Walk along Main Street westwards for about 300m. Here turn right to walk along Howgill Lane. After about 350m the lane bends round to the left and after another 700m the lane makes a sharp left hand 90degree turn at map ref. SD650924.

2.) At the bend in the lane turn right off the lane and follow the bridleway past Lockbank Farm and begin the steep climb along the bridleway up the side of the fell called Winder. About 1.6km from Lockbank Farm the bridleway reached a col between Winder and Arant Haw.

3.) From the col between Winder and Arant Haw continue along the bridleway for almost 3km. around the side of Arant Haw and along the ridge to Calders at map ref. SD671961.

4.) From the top of Calders (674m) follow the bridleway northwards for a little over 1km to The Calf.

5.) The Calf (676m) is the highest point on the Howgill Fells at map ref. SD667970. There is an amazing 360° panorama from here when it's clear, taking in the North Pennines, The Yorkshire Three Peaks, Morecombe Bay and The Lake District. From The Calf follow the path north west for about 550m to White Fell Head. Here follow the bridleway around to the left and continue down the steep ridge of White Fell to the confluence of Long Rigg Beck and Calf Beck at map ref. SD645962.

6.) From the confluence of Long Rigg Beck and Calf Beck, follow the beck downstream for about 750m to the intake wall at map ref. SD642957 near Ivy Crag. From here follow the intake wall for about 4km back to the bridleway at Lockbank Farm. Most of the way there is a path following the wall but there are a few sections of rough walking beside the wall. From Lockbank Farm retrace your steps back to the car park in Sedbergh.

Note: the intake wall is the boundary between the enclosed farmland and the open unfenced fells.
