Crossing Birk Fell Hawse
Crossing Birk Fell Hawse
The 'hawse' is a slight depression on the more-or-less level ridge of Birk Fell once used as a pass by copper miners linking the workings at Tilberthwaite and Greenburn. Few traverse it now except en route to Wetherlam whose final climb (Wetherlam Edge) rears into the clouds ahead of the lone walker.
