New Route Published – Milburn Forest & Tees Head Circuit


We’ve just published details of our latest route deep in Cumbria’s lead mining region. It offers a perfect day out for experienced runners and walkers and is centred on Garrigill near Alston in Cumbria. Its 31 km (19 miles) takes in Cross Fell (the highest point in the Pennines), Little Dun Fell, Great Dun Fell (with its radar station) and Moor House Nature Reserve and visits the sources of both the River Tees and South Tyne as well as impressive examples of the area’s lead mining heritage. At 893 m, Cross Fell is higher than many of the peaks in the Lake District and arguably offers better views. So if you want a challenging day out with stunning panoramas this is the place to go!
