Mardale Head Car Park

Mardale Head Car Park

Haweswater, Burn Banks, CA10

This remote car park at the head of Haweswater Reservoir offers access to fantastic scenic walks by day and the most amazing dark, starry skies by night. Mountains obscure the East and West horizons somewhat, however, the skies directly above are awesome! A location that is in itself an adventure to get to!
