    Harveys definitely, I suppose its personal preference really but I just find them easier to read on the move and there is enough detail, plus its easier to see the shape of the land. I did struggle to get one of the maps you need for the Fellsman last year from Harveys so jusy make sure you order early enough

    Fidaleo,
    Fleet Moss onwards sounds good to me. The preceding section up to and down from Dodd Fell would have been good as well but I think that would be too much to fit into one day. Doing from Fleet Moss onwards is already pushing it to the max, in my opinion.
    I would like to do Dodd Fell as well and fnish at the car in Grassington but as you say that would be a long day....its in my diary so let me know re arrangements nearer the time..
