Kevin Foster walked up on September 15th, 2018 [from/via/route] Walk du145 from Saint John's Chapel. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny to start but then clouded over. - The walk begins with a direct but very pleasant approach to Chapelfell Top via a lane immediately behind the Golden Lion pub. After the lane is left the going does get tough for a while but eases a bit when the man made gulley cut through the peat hags directs you to the small summit cairn itself. This gutter which is very wide in places is then followed to a shallow col & a slight rise of barely 50 feet to the next top, Fendrith Hill,which has The nicest views of the whole walk into Teesdale. The second half of the walk over Westernhope Moor & the descent over Black Hill is a bit of a slog but the return along the river Wear to the starting point following the Weardale Way more than compensates for it.
