Roadside, top of Wrynose Pass

This is somewhere I'd only attempt to park if I were out for an early start. The number of spaces are somewhat limited and if you did arrive to find the place full, your options for an alternative are almost none existent in the area.


Route Map

The Three Shire Stone. This is found on the top of Wrynose Pass. It marks the point where the three counties of Cumberland, Westmoorland and Lancashire used to meet.

Just past the stone, looking down to Wrynose Bottom and Harter Fell.

Great Knott and the route up to Crinkle Crags from near Red Tarn.

Red Tarn with some of the Coniston fells behind (still under cloud)

From the path between Red Tarn and Pike O Blisco.
Great Knott is the fell on the right of the picture with Crinkle Crags behind it somewhere in the clouds.

Looking down our route off Pike O Blisco.

Mickleden with Pike O Stickle on the right and Rossett Pike at the head of the valley.

Looking back up the route off Pike O Blisco.

The Langdale Pikes from the place where the path from Pike O Blisco meets the road near Side Pike.

Lingmoor Fell summit.

Blea Tarn from the path off Lingmoor Fell.

One of the best views of the Langdale Pikes ( but not today I'm sorry to say )

The outflow from Blea Tarn into Bleamoss Beck.

From Wrynose Bridge looking back down the road.
I'm not tired, honest. I'm just seeing how strong this wall is.

From a little further up Wrynose Pass looking down to a hazy Little Langdale.
