Wythburn church - thirlmere - parking


Anyone wishing to commence their ascent of Helvellyn (LD-003) and park at Wythburn Church please note that you now have to pay to park on the North West Water Boards car park.

The machine takes £1.00 coins and no notes

Tanks for the info Myke, another car park to be avoided!


In reply to G6DDQ:
What are they charging Myke?

The charges are layered. We paid £5.00,the maximum, for 4 hours or more. There are of course lower charges for less time. We felt that we needed to allow four hours to be safe.

Not sure as to whether or not there are patrols.

Its a long way from the philosophy of the previous owners Manchester Corporation Water Board who built the reservoir at Thirlmere
