Parked by cattle grid near Aules Hill then off piste route to Three Pikes. Then onward to bag the twin tops of Great Blacklaw Hill before heading over to Black Hill to bag Knarsdale Forest trig on a very hot and sunny day.

Parked on verge just before Hanging Shaw and followed bulldozed track to a junction not shown on the map and from there straight on up the fence line to the TP. Passed the previous visitor on the way up without realising it! Took both dogs with me, though felt afterwards the climb up from Hanging Shaw was about as much as the old fella could handle... By the way Ted, the 'Big Fish Little Fish' thing was a daft dance thing from the 90's Acid House / Rave / Happy Handbag clubbing scene. Not just North East - I was introduced to it by my Cornish girlfriend at the time. Doing it now will make you look very silly, but provide endless amusement to 10 year old neices, nephews, step-daughters etc. Hope this has been of use!

N side of fence. Plug intact. Breezy with intermittent showers. Passed the next visitor on the way back down without realising it. Knarsdale approached from Haltwhistle via the rail trail - Lambley viaduct very impressive. On the train home, passengers were singing "Big Fish, Little Fish, Cardboard Box" - I was mystified. Maybe a North East thing :)

A glorious view of the green lush moors on the Northumbrian border, park near the nearly finished newly extended steam rail line at Slaggyford - really is worth the walk via Knarsdale - glorious with a fantastic number of birds - curlew, peewit, plover, corncrake

Very limited parking opportunities at Hanging Shaw, made do with parking on the verge, after wet weather this may not be an option. Followed the tracks up to the summit, then a quick hack over the heather. Good view.

Bright clear frosty day. Up from Hanging Shaw. Parked at the covered reservoir where there's several good parking spaces. Passed the gamekeeper who was out distributing trays of medicated grit for the grouse.
