Fontburn Dod Wood (Stone Circle) by costaexpress Well what an adventure this turned out to be. After a pleasant 40 minute meander around the southern shores the last 100 yds was a real puzzle, where to cross the bog, when I jump the stream will I land on solid ground, where can I get up the bank without breaking an ankle in the hollows, how to I climb the barbed wire fence, should I be doing this at 65, of course I should, and what a reward

Sounds like the krypton factor course for TMAers! thelonious Posted by thelonious

Ah, it was for me, I'm sure for others it's a simple skip up the bank and a hop over the fence, wouldn't want to put anyone off, in any case there must be a simpler way in to move the livestock around, probably from the North, although as it's on private land you may need to ask at the farmhouse for permission to use their access.

Sorry you had a difficult last 100 yards, it isn't easy, even at 50.
I suppose an easier route would be from Newbiggin farm to the north east, providing they let you leave the car there and give you permission to go awandering. I will not be asking permission for anywhere at anytime unless we're talking Harestanes and the like.
