Kirkstone Pass Closed


Just a note for travellers in these parts. The road up Kirkstone from the south is being resurfaced and possibly closed from Monday 29th for several days. The signed diversions are via Kendal,the A6 and A66! However the pass itself and the Struggle from Ambleside will remain open so if you’re not a lorry you should be ok that way. More details as they come to hand but watch out if you’re heading to Patterdale etc


In reply to G4RQJ:


Is the pass still closed? Down to the Lakes this weekend.



In reply to GM4CFS:
Yes the closure is scheduled for 9am to 5pm each day this week. You can come over the pass from Patterdale but must turn right at the Kirkstone inn, down the "Struggle"into Ambleside. The return route is the same. This won’t work if you have a caravan/big vehicle and the signed route is via the A6 and Kendal!
Will update this if the local radio advises otherwise, hope you enjoy the trip and will look out for you
