Starting Point Information Centre -
Roadside parking, near Wythop Church

This literally 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.

This evening we have a short walk over good old Sale Fell which never fails to deliver if you're after a quick fix of fresh air and nice views.
