Hi Slowcoach, yes there is parking at Fell Gate which is at the start of the Walna Scar track. Just take the little steep road past Usher's Joinery on Station Road and keep going until you reach the gate. With all the recent flooding the parking area is a bit rough in parts, but it saves a steep climb on foot (unless you are aware of easier routes which of course I am). Enjoy !!!

They say time's a great healer, so let's all hope that as the days soon start getting longer you both will start feeling better.


lets hope things can only get Better

A spoof remix of Tomy Blair at a party conference saying the words of that campaign song 'things can only get better'.

I really wanted the Mountain Equipment Kongur MRT jacket for crimbo. However, the desire to swan about in it up Scafell looking the business was offset by the worry that if ever I came a cropper and had to call out the MRT boys I'd have to put up with all the "Nice jackt mate" jibes I'd get while being stretchered down frown

They would probably be absolutely gobsmacked to come across a proper fell-walker wearing pukka walking gear actually on the fells. Berghaus, Rohan, Craghopper, Palamo etc etc by the hundreds in the streets of Keswick, Ambleside and Conistone. Out on the fells? Trainers, holey jeans and pacamacs. And that's just the sheep!

Have to admit last time I was in the Lakes in November everyone in Ambleside was dripping in North Face, Paramo and Rab, but there was nary a soul up on the tops... go figure.

In respect of Wainwright and to keep his traditions on the Coast to Coast path surely you should do the walk in a raincoat.
