Parking Information for - Roadside Parking, Rydal (Church)

Parking Details and Map
Nearest Post Code: LA22 9LR
Grid Reference: NY 364 706
Notes: The roadside parking at the side of Rydal Church has always been a very popular place to start your walk especially those walking the Fairfield Horseshoe of visiting Loughrigg Fell, Rydal Hall and Rydal Tarn. There once was room for up to twenty cars plus but this was limited after Storm Desmond during the Winter of 2015 when the road and the drains where damaged resulting in limited parking. If you arrive early you shouldn't have any problems parking but if left late you may struggle. At the side of the Church there is a Honesty Box.
