Winder and Arant Haw are two hills included in this delightful walk from Sedbergh. The Howgill Fells are an integral part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park yet they display a unique character. The walking is good, the views superb and the paths quiet. Who could ask for more? A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).

The Lune Valley and Howgills - A Walking Guide
A guidebook to 40 walks, from 3 to 11 miles, exploring the Lune Valley and Howgill Fells, some of the most unspoilt countryside in northwest England.

Walks in the Yorkshire Dales
Guidebook to 50 of Jack Keighleys favourite walks in the Yorkshire Dales. All the walks are circular, and range from 4½ to nearly 8 miles. They vary from simple valley strolls (ideal as half-day 'family rambles') to strenuous fell expeditions. Hand-written and profusely illustrated in Jack's highly distinctive style.
Situated east of the Lake District, the Howgills lie mostly within the boundaries of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Howgills are one of the forgotten walking areas in England. The "hippo like" outlines of the fells are distinctive, most often seen by those tearing up the M6 motorway between Kendal and Penrith. Despite the lack of crags it is great walking country and you can wander for hours in the knowledge you are unlikely to meet more than a handful of other people. Poor parking (except in Sedbergh and a few other areas) helps to keep the number of people wandering the Howgills to a minimum. More Information
