Found on the quieter western edge of the Lake District, there never seems to be problem getting parked here. Perhaps this is a result of the limited number of fells that can be reached from here. Having said that, the walks that can be done from here are fantastic.

Parking is free.

It was another lovely evening so we headed to Knock Murton and Cogra Moss, which are close enough to home to get to after work.

From the route up to Knock Murton, looking across to the Solway Firth and Scotland.

And again this time with Blake Fell on he left of the picture.
The insects were out in force this evening. I couldn't stand still for more than a couple of seconds with out being covered in them.
