A relatively easy walk of around 11km meeting at the visitors centre on Beacon Fell.  One of the highest points in the area we start nearly half way up, we'll descend the fell and follow a very pretty river valley for a good portion of the walk and then back to reach the summit trig of the fell. 

With a name like Beacon Fell, expect a prominent hill. An outlier of the Bowland Fells, its altitude of 873ft (266m) may seem comparatively modest but its detached position gives excellent sight lines - and it was much more accessible for those who had to man the beacon!   Part of a Network In the days before telegraph and telephone, beacons were the nearest thing to instantaneous communication.
