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 and 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 and 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.

Darren Mortimer climbed on July 21st, 2018 [from/via/route] Road side [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Overcast and warm

Mark Davidson bagged on May 25th, 2007 [with] Alone [weather] Sunny, warm and dry - just lovely

Christine Shepherd hiked on September 14th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from St. John's Chapel using walks du145 and du129 [with] On my own [weather] Warm but the mist swirled around me all day. - As the weather was deteriorating and I could hardly see the fence I made the decision to retrace my steps from this summit back to the road at Swinhope Head and went down from there instead of going over Black Hill.

Ray O'Hara summited on February 4th, 2013 [weather] 60 MPH winds, ground frozen, a little lying snow.

Paul Booth and Trevor Williams have both walked, climbed & bagged Westernhope Moor.
