Cow Green track crosses Sledge Sike
Cow Green track crosses Sledge Sike
A public footpath follows this track, originally here to serve a number of old mines overlooking the Upper Tees, now flooded by Cow Green reservoir. From the Cow Green parking area, the track heads northwest across Backside Fell before turning north on the east side of Crook Burn to reach the Langdon Beck to Alston road close to its summit at Yad Moss. Just ahead of the photographer, it crosses Sledge Sike, at a point where the landscape is modified by mining spoil, noticeable mainly by the different vegetation it supports compared to the surrounding peaty moorland. In the distance, with their tops in the cloud, are Great and Little Dun Fell and Cross Fell, the highest point of the Pennines, seen over the headwaters of the Tees.
