Roadside parking, Cockley Beck Bridge

Found at the point where Hardknott Pass, Wrynose Pass and Duddon Valley meet, Cockley Beck is such a difficult place to reach. Once you're here though, you have a wonderful feeling of being well away from the rest of civilisation and well and truly among the fells.
