Tips for the Tops:

Mickle Fell (35A, LR91/92)

Andy Hyams: Many of you will know that this hill (and its Hewitt and Dewey outliers) is within an extensive and active military range. I found (but did not touch) shell cases on a recent visit. There are plenty of notices at access points giving the relatively few days when live firing does not take place, but for those of you not wishing to chance to luck, the following dates have been designated for public access in 2008: 25-26 May; 5-6, 12-13 July; 2-3, 24-25 Aug; 4-5 Oct; 1-2 Nov; 24-31 Dec. There are also two useful contact numbers: an access line on 0800 7835181 and the range warden on 01768 343235.
