    scaled Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on May 19th, 2018 [from/via/route] Garrigill [with] Henry [weather] Sunny - The opening section of the walk, along the infant river Tyne with its waterfalls and narrow wooded gorges, made this a walk I'll certainly remember. My only criticism was the stiles and fences were not very dog friendly and even Henry, my very fit Labrador, struggled with some of them. Eventually the South Tyne Trail I'd been following had to be left behind to begin the trek across pathless moor to the top of Bellbeaver Rigg. The top itself has two large cairns (I think the westerly one was on slightly higher ground) and views in every direction of distant fells across miles of open moorland. These Northern Pennine hills do feel very remote and in the case of Bellbeaver Ring hardly visited at all.

    Kevin Foster walked up Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on May 19th, 2018 [from/via/route] Garrigill. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny. - The first section of the walk, which followed the infant river Tyne as it cascaded over waterfalls and through narrow wooded gorges, was lovely and made this a walk I'll certainly remember. In complete contrast the next section left the South Tyne trail to head up over pathless heather and grass moorland to the top of the fell, which from its other name (Tynehead Fell) must be the source of the river South Tyne although the very dry conditions meant I did not see the source. The top itself has two large cairns, about 200 m apart, the westerly one being slightly higher, I think. The views give a real sense of remoteness, distant fells in every direction across miles of desolate moorland. These northern pennine hills, even on a sunny day, give you a real wilderness feel and appear to be hardly visited at all.

    Christine Shepherd climbed Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on April 2nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked from Garrigill using walk c443 [with] On my own [weather] Glorious spring sunshine with a light breeze. - Wonderful views from this summit especially towards Cross Fell.

    Ray O'Hara bagged Bellbeaver Rigg (Tynehead Fell) on June 25th, 2013 [from/via/route] Straight out and back walk from B6277 [weather] ok - Not too bad, nice views, some attempt at drainage out there so the bogs weren't too bad.
