Would have been a bit easier from Nimby Nibthwaite but no sniff of any parking there and they probably want to keep it that way. Drove on to NT car park at Dodgson Wood then followed permissive path marked by white arrows towards derelict Parkamoor before cutting uphill across open pasture to the uncairned summit.Topographer5705/07/2019

Circuit from Crab Haws car parkAjm031011/09/2018
An insanely busy Coniston water today. Seriously suprised by the volume of people and the embarrasingly poor parking in the actual carpark. Marilyn summit feels lower to me than the cairned proper top. Not sure i buy in to the pedantry of an odd meter. Youd not know if not for the gps. Still, keep putting your blind faith in science..stig_nest28/05/2018
