Only use official car park – farmer will be unimpressed if you use his land without permission.
|Grizedale North||Access at High Cross has parking right up to the stage. Moor Top car park is on the other side of the road and you will have a short walk.||Spectator points are all accessed from the car park .|
|Grizedale South||Access at Bowkersteads between Satterthwaite and Force Mills. Parking leads right up to the stage.||Satterthwaite is VERY PR sensitive. Be extremely careful and slow through the village.|
NB. Your car parking fee is shared between the volunteer clubs who are helping you to park and the Forestry Commission or landowners. It will include a programme which will contain an entry list and maps of the stages, showing the locations of the spectator areas.
However , why not volunteer and marshal? There is online training at www.msauk.org which needs to be done to register with the MSA, but if you haven’t done this we can operate a buddy system to give you guidance with a trained marshal. Please ring Chief Marshals Mike Dunning 0790 058635 or Martin Dentice on 07793 555986 who will be delighted to point you in the right direction.
