Hardendale Nab, Shap, Coast to Coast
Hardendale Nab is an area of Common Land, having one private owner, Shapfell Limestone Ltd. The company owns a registered minor interest in the property, known as a profit a prendre in gross. The commoners' rights over this land relate to the sheep, presumably a right to let them graze.
Nell's Moss, an area of moss and stone is located on the far side of the lane but the Coast to Coast path avoids it, flanking its northern border, on its way towards Oddendale.
Hardendale Nab is a hill rising above the M6 motorway, on the opposite side to Shap. Its south west side is a steep limestone escarpment, although the summit is easily approached from all other quarters.
