    Kevin Foster walked up Melmerby Fell on March 16th, 2018 [from/via/route] Melmerby [with] Henry [weather] Wet and very windy. Hill fog. - A Helm wind was blowing hard as I set off out of the village. Following the quiet farm track up the hill, and after the plantation, the route zig-zagged up the grassy slopes of Meikle Awfell taking full advantage of the natural features. Out of the wind the route was quite pleasant and much better than the recommended direct trudge up Cuns Fell. After a brief lunch break in the shelter of the intake wall I climbed gradually (into the wind) then followed the wall eastwards along the top of the scar until it took a sharp turn left rising to just below the summit ridge of Dun Edge. I made a slight detour to the right to visit Meg's cairn crossing the old roman road (Maiden Way) before returning to the summit ridge and finally the cairn marking the summit of Melmerby Fell.

    Mark Davidson climbed Melmerby Fell on February 21st, 2007 [with] Mike & his friend [weather] Cloudy, cold with mist

    Christine Shepherd bagged Melmerby Fell on August 16th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from Melmerby using the good path straight up the fell, then used walk c430 to Fiends Fell and for the descent back to Melerby. [with] On my own [weather] Glorious sunshine witha pleasant breeze on the summit. - A very pleasant walk.

    Chris Faulkner hiked Melmerby Fell on August 30th, 2014 [from/via/route] Walk Route Summary: - Melmerby, Meikle Awfell, Cuns Fell, Maiden Way (Roman Road), Meg's Cairn, Melmerby Fell, Knapside Hill, Little Knapside Hill, Fiend's Fell, Twotop Bridge, Hazel Rigg Farm, Gamblesby, Gill Beck, Melmerby. [with] Michelle Chandler [weather] Windy. Dry. - Lovely.

    Ray O'Hara summited Melmerby Fell on February 5th, 2013 [from/via/route] Melmerby - Melmebrby Fell - Fiends Fell - Melmerby [weather] Cloud above 1900'. Snow on the ground from start to finish, blizzard with 40 MPH winds whilst on the ridge. - An extremely pleasant walk, definitely one to repeat on a fine clear summer's day. I got the impression that the ground wouldn't have been at all boggy, even in wet weather.
