Roadside parking, Binsey Cottage

There isn't much room along here I'm afraid; four cars if you're lucky. Then again, and quite wrongly in my opinion, Binsey has a reputation of being an "also visited" fell, so the chances are that you'll still get a parking space.


Route Map

From the start of the walk looking back over the stile towards Dash Falls with Bakestall on the right and Little Calva on the left.

Overwater and the Back O'Skiddaw fells.

Binsey's summit with Bassenthwaite and the North Western fells behind.

The grassy area around the summit on Binsey.

From my route down looking to Bassenthwaite and the North Western fells again.

Zooming in on Dash Falls with the skyline of the Blencathra ridge behind.

A twisted tree complete with sheep's wool decorations.
