A Walk up Great Knipe in the North Pennines Details

This summit is less than 1km from the busy A66 dual carriageway, but owing to it being MOD land it still provides a sense of remoteness. It’s short, but noted as a hard walk as there’s a good degree of off path navigation needed.

Ensure you read any signs and warnings on this route – which follows a rotue recommended by the MOD. It’s probably a good idea to follow this advise lest you be captured as a POW in some mock battle.
