Stories, information and comments from Waddington Fell climbers
Story by Robert from , United Kingdom, submitted on 30/06/2015
This climb starts from the very pretty Waddington Village where it kicks up a little steeply at the bottom but only for 50 metres or so. The climb then settles into a very steady gradient which even the poorer climbers such as myself can climb at a half decent pace. It goes pretty much straight all the way up and passes the old derelict Moorcock Inn halfway up. Once you are past this you spot ahead that the road will not be this kind all the way up. Just before the last stretch to the top the road turns against you with 2 distinct separate changes in gradient. This though can help you as once you have got over the first steep section the second one has a slight descent of 10 meters before it to give you a good push up! Once over this steep section the road flatens out until you reach the cattle grid and parking area at the top. The views from here are not that great until you start to descend on the other side and the whole of the Bowland area is visible in front of you. The little villages of Newton-in-Bowland, Slaidburn and Dunsop Bridge (famously the centre of the Great Britain) are a treat to ride through! I''d definately recommend an ice cream from Dunsop Bridge for all your efforts
