I fancy doing Long Man Hill tomorrow from the Pennine Way.  A couple of years ago there was a temporary access restriction shown on a map in Garrigill.  Is the restriction in place just now?

In reply to Pete Pozman:

Nothing showing on the Natural England Open Access portal so you should be alright.

I often walk in that area and have never seen an access restriction around there. I last walked that section of the Pennine Way about six months ago, on a round taking in Cross Fell, and there were no restrictions then. I don't know of any reason there should be any in place now, unless it's to prevent lovers of little visited hills sinking up to their necks in bog.

If you fancy a longer day, I reckon the approach from the Penrith to Alston road, heading along the Maiden Way and branching off at the Melmerby Shop, is more interesting.
