Hardendale Nab, Shap, Coast to Coast

Hardendale Nab is a small hill rising to 370 metres, located east of Shap and the M6. The Coast to Coast path crosses the southern flank of the hill, below its steep rocky escarpment, crossing between the Nab and a couple of foul looking quarry pools, each of chemically illuminated coloured water. The first was a vivid bright green and the other was a light lemony green. Just below the pools is a quarry road that is crossed by the Coast to Coast path where the path leaves the moorland to descend on wooden steps to the road, to rise again on the opposite side.

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.
