Key to symbols:
= Trig Point

There is a trig point on Fremington Edge, which I had intended to bag on both my Coast to Coast walks, but for one reason or another I’d not quite got round to it. So I decided to dedicate a day walk just to the trig point and the result is what you see here. I ended up cutting the walk shorter than originally intended due to the onset of rain and apathy.

Car parking in Reeth is ample and cheap and they have toilets – at this point I run out of complimentary things to say about the village 🙂

At the gate I turned right to cut across the face of Fremington Edge, via some old quarry workings

There is a fine track along Fremington Edge to the trig point….

but when I turned round to go back the other way, the track becomes faint and very boggy in places
