POSTPONED - Mounting Paddy's Pole
3 people attending
17 places left
If you need a distraction from current events, then why not join your fellow OutdoorLads on a Bank Holiday walk in the Lancashire hills - you'll get fresh air, exercise, good views and good company all thrown in!
On this walk, we'll set off from the village of Chipping and climb gradually towards Saddle Fell. From there, we'll cut across Wolf Fell and Fair Snape Fell (510m) towards the curiously-named Paddy's Pole, where we'll stop for lunch. We'll then head south towards Parlick (432m) and, after a steep descent, we'll walk back across farmland towards Chipping where there are several pubs and cafes, at least one of which will hopefully be open!
Unfortunately, due to restrictions on the Access Land that we'll be crossing, it won't be possible to bring dogs on this event.
Incidentally, there is another walk up Fair Snape Fell on 3rd May but starting elsewhere and approaching from a different direction (https://www.outdoorlads.com/events/fell-tastic-hike-200503). Why not sign up for both and experience the same peak from different angles?

What to bring
If you're unsure what to wear or bring for a day walk, see the kit list in the About Us > My First Event section of the website.
If you have gaiters it's a good idea to wear those as paths are likely to be muddy.
Food & drink
You'll need to bring a packed lunch/snacks and enough fluids to keep you hydrated during the walk (recommended 1-2 litres of water).
