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.

Just a short walk out tonight and Sale Fell seemed the perfect choice. Here, standing at the back of the car I take a picture looking across to Bassenthwaite Lake and Binsey.


Looking ahead to Lothwaite.

It may be a small fell but what a view.


Looking across to Lord's Seat and Broom Fell.

On the homeward stretch we walk down the side of Sale Fell with warm(ish) sunshine on our backs.
