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.

Bassenthwaite Lake seen just after the start of the walk.

Wythop Wood ahead of us as we followed the path around the side of Sale Fell.

And again, this time from the place where we started to follow the wall to gain higher ground.

Very wet under foot around the area between Sale Fell and Lothwaite.

Another picture taken the the same area. Surprisingly this picture shows the nice golden colour of the bracken at this time of year. It was a pity the sun wasn't out to show it off even more.

It was bucketing down now and the cloud was closing in.

In the clouds.

Sale Fell summit. Compare this to the following picture of the view I got on an evening walk up here in July

Walking back round towards the car.
