Parking spaces near Darling How Farm, Whinlatter Pass

With room for about a dozen or so cars, this spot proves handy for numerous different ascents of the group of fells usually referred to as the Lord's Seat fells. And despite them being grouped together under the name of a single fell, there is actually a nice selection of fells to choose from; including Whinlatter and Greystones.

Parking is free and this is a place I've always managed to get a space, regardless of the time of day or year.
