If you keep on past the entrance to the Travelodge car park entrance you can park easily on the roadside actually alongside the footpath. This crosses the A66 and crosses two fields until it reaches a dead end. The end double fence takes some crossing but if you turn right and follow it upwards it becomes a tad easier near the fence junction. Once crossing it here you can follow a path to the summit. Only the one fence to negotiate, the only other gate will (eventually) open.moorsman17/10/2019
Limited parking at NY1158029565. N past petrol station, then L up Europe Way (between police station and Honda garage, until just past Travelodge. Signed tarmac FP L to descend wooden staircase to A66, which was closed making it easy to cross and up similar overgrown wooden staircase on W side. But this meets a BWF around livestock market - R along faint brambly path to wobbly stile into field - up to a gate with field with 'stone circle'. But this gate seems to be the closest point of approach, where the RoW ends.Isbjorn12/10/2019

Given the hour - post sunset - it seemed the Travelodge car park was the best bet and it proved serviceable. RoW just stops at a field boundary, just kept heading W and top of the hill hove into view. Most interetsing part was crossing the A66 in rush hour.jonglew14/12/2017
Solo. Footpath across A66 to stone circle. Two gates to climb to reach highest point, which is just in view of farm. Back same way.Dangerous Dave11/12/2017
On way to Cockermouth to collect Margaret returning from Italy and to hear of her frightening experience of the awful Italian earthquake which killed 300 this week. Up from Mitchell's Livestock Auction Mart whose multi-million pound /multi functional building is used for Cumbria's largest indoor sunday car boot sale once the stalls have been disinfected from holding sheep and cattle. Mitchells also host art/ collectables auctions and the following week were auctioning Wainwright memorabilia being sold by Hunter Davies. I bid on an original pen and ink drawing of Kendal on market day in 19th Century -which looked wonderfully Lowry like. Guide price was up to £250. After careful and prolonged consideration I bid £280. Sadly it went for £650 !Chris Pearson28/08/2016
Via the faux stone circle. Top fields full of frisky cows and calves so caution!peebs14/09/2015
From S parking at Wellington Farm. Nature Trail for 100m or so, then gate and lane N to large barn. Flat area, readings taken in fields to E and NE; highest point taken as field to NE but debatable.Aye Jimmy01/08/2015
From NE, RoW from N side of Travelodge to a stone circle, then 3 gates to summit NE of a barn.RHW17/05/2015
Dusk after work from Travelodge parking - trig afterwardsnordicstar28/11/2014
Parked at Travelodge and over road on path. Not too difficult but requires a few gate leaps.mcbiydw221/09/2013
