Lake District Cottages rated 3 Star accommodation

AROUND KNOCK PIKE

Start Point: Milburn Grange Holiday Cottages (NY 671280)

Distance: 6.1 Km (3.8 miles)
Ascent: 100 meters
Time: 1.0hrs.

Directions:
Turn left out of the gate to Milburn Grange Holiday Cottages into the lane leading to the farm. Between the main farmhouse and some outbuildings with green doors is a track leading through a gate to a field. Walk across the field to the rear corner of the 'coldstore' and cross the style. Continue along the perimeter fence to the coldstore until anmother style is reached. Cross this style before dropping into a ditch which is traversed by a rudimentary footbridge. Up the bank, then across the field in a Southeasterly direction to a gate across the end of the track leading to Close House Farm (NY678277). Follow the track into the farmyard and to the tarmac road leading up to the summit of Great Dun Fell. Turn left (Northeast) onto the road and proceed up the hill, past the Christian Centre, through a wood and thence alongside Knock Pike. Upon reaching the disused quarry (on your left at NY 686288) the track to the right is obvious.

Cross the cattle grid and follow the track in a Southeasterly direction behind the Pike until you meet a path above the Swindale Beck (NY 690284). Turn right (Southwest), heading downhill to a wooden style over a drystone wall. Cross the style and continue alongside Knock Pike to a gated wall with a 'squeeze' style. Through the style and head South across the field to the head of a track (NY 687277), enclosed on either side by a drystone wall. Follow the track (usually very muddy) until you reach the farm. Turn right (Northwest) onto the tarmac road and walk through the fellside village of Knock. Continue along the road, up the hill to the bottom of the Fell road and on to Silverband where you will find the village store and thence back to Milburn Grange (NY 671280).

These directions are provided for guidance only. This walk should not be attempted without a compass and a suitable map (OS Landranger 91 or OS Explorer OL19).
