Parking Information for - Roadside Parking, Top of Hardknott Pass

Parking Details and Map
Nearest Post Code: CA19 1TH
Grid Reference: NY 229 001

Parking can be limited due to the nature of Hardnott Pass due to how narrow the road is. If travelling from the Cockly Beck side the parking spaces can be found just past the summit of the pass on the left, a few yards further a few spaces can be found on the left hand side with room for around three cars, if this area is busy there are more spaces found along the top of the pass but these spaces only have room for just the one or two cars. Parking is free.

Please take caution and check the weather forecast the day before travelling over the Wrynose and Hardknott passes as during the Autumn, Winter and Spring months snow and black ice may affect your journey sometimes resulting in both passes being closed.
