This is a reasonably high-level walk (the highest point is 510m) and although the ascent up to the fells is gradual, the descent down Parlick is steep

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?
