csd and three5four0 are both on the nail when they say Crenville ‘requires much lifting of one’s legs’ and ‘an unusual amount of bog holes’. This is an unusual summit as it has all of the described bog holes, trenches, tussocks, deep grass and short heather. One footstep could place you onto firm turf and the next could be a 4 foot hole. The grass ranges from short and wiry to wide and long. The only explanation I can think of is that this was once fully forested and that after partial felling the scarred ground was conquered by an assortment of growth that hides the troubled ground below. On the plus side, I did find an intact and pristine dogs harness!

I headed to Crenville from Slievemartin which is just over 1 kilometre to the south. Slievemartin is very easily reached from the car park at J196 174 following the signposted ‘black arrow’ route. From Slievemartin I crossed pleasant grassy slopes to reach a fence at J204 182. After crossing the fence I entered the twilight zone of Crenville’s curious underfoot conditions. Although the summit is only a few hundred metres from the fence, it took a long time to cover the distance as I tested the ground before each footstep. Hidden holes and streams beneath the grass are the problem, as well as the effort of forging a path at times. I enjoyed the walk though and even found a small dog’s harness on the slope. I can’t imagine a small dog finding it too easy to run about here so I have no idea how it got there.

There is nothing to mark the summit and there is a feeling that Crenville is little visited. It has an isolated feel that will probably continue until the rest of the forestry is cleared. After Crenville I took a direct bearing to Slievemeel which involved more crazy underfoot challenges on the north slope of Crenville before navigating through some very interesting forestry further north. My photo shows a ‘T’ shaped growth of forestry on Crenville as seen from Slievemartin. Perhaps ‘T’ stands for tussocky, tricky, tiring and testing!
