A panoramic walk exploring Hedleyhope Fell and Nature Reserve from the loftily situated Tow Law. The route, that passes through a wind turbine farm, includes very pleasant field- and lane-walking and because of its high location also reveals great panoramic views of the local countryside.

From Tow Law the walk almost immediately enters the Open Access Land of Hedleyhope Fell before leaving the fell and passing through a group of wind turbines. Pleasant field-walking follows that present great panoramic views. After a short length of road-walking then another section through fields, the walk leads off the ridge and down to the valley floor. The route then enters the picturesque Hedleyhope Fell Nature Reserve, following the Hedleyhope Burn. After another short road-walk the route heads back up across the Hedleyhope Fell, from where great views are revealed. Another short section of road-walking then ends with field-walking to descend off the ridge and emerge into the Deerness Valley. The last long section of the walk follows a wide dirt track back to Tow Law.
