Starting Point Information Centre
Roadside parking, near Wythop Church

This litterally is parking alongside the road, with more of the car being on than off the road. There are some wider spaces in front of the church, but for instant access to the fellside below Sale Fell this is the beat spot.

Obviously parking is free along here.


Route Map

It's been a busy week for me with no time for walk since last Sunday and I didn't really expect to get out today either. I finished work later than normal for a Friday but earlier than I expected to today. When I called in at home Jennifer was there so I suggested a short walk and ten minutes later we were driving here.

The bracken is well on the turn now

Through the gateway onto the open fell we go. Right above the big gate post is Binsey.

Looking across to Lord's Seat seen as we make our way up Dodd Crag.

"Which way do you want to go now"
"Lets walk back the longer way around by Rivings and Lothwaite"
