Fell Side, Caldbeck

Where to meet: Fell Side, Caldbeck
Postcode:  CA7 8HA
Grid Reference: NY 305 375 


If you are coming from the north or east, then the best thing to do is to find the B5299 and come down through Caldbeck, keep on the B5299, which bears right in Caldbeck village, heading in a westerly direction. Go through the very small hamlet of Whelpo, and then just before the tiny hamlet of Parkend (approximately 2 miles from Caldbeck) where there is a bridge across the river, turn acutely left on a small road, go along this for about ¾ mile taking the next right signposted towards Fellside. After about a mile you will find the small hamlet of Fellside. There is a small car park up the second lane to the left as you enter the hamlet, we will meet here.

If you are approaching from the Keswick or Wigton side, then you need to take the B5299, off the A595, and again continue this until you get to Parkend, where just after the hamlet you would bear right and follow the instructions as above.
