Please park respectful of the residents – don’t block gates, driveways, junctions, etc. There is good parking at the viewpoint parking above the village.

Kit Dump: There will be a kit dump for you to leave bags, car keys, etc. at the start/finish which will be fully staffed whilst you are out on the fells.
