Walk first completed 20 08 2002  with Richard. We parked by St Peter's church, Martindale and followed the path over Nettlehow Crag and Bronthwaite Crag before cutting back north-eastward towards Loadpot Hill. We then followed the route of the Roman Road over Whether Hill and Red Crag before climbing up to High Raise. We continued over Rampsgill Head and The Knott to Rest Dodd before descending through the Deer Forest and over The Nab eventually joining the road near Dale Head. It may be that this is private land and we shouldn't have walked here. We saw hundreds of deer on the way down.
