Just back from a week in the Lakes walking and comuning with nature.

While travelling round I found 3 wilding sites that don't seem to be listed as POI's:-

Corney Fell between Bootle and Broughton in Furness
N 53^ 17' 42"
W 3^ 18' 28"
No restriction signs
Very rural hard standing. This is on a single track road (with passing places) high on the moors. The pull in is where the road changes from fenced to unfenced. My 4x4 demount had no problems but probably only suitable for small vans


On the A5093 about 1.7 miles from Millom.
N54^ 13' 47"
W 3^ 16' 23"
No restriction signs
Rural layby with trees screening it from the road. I stopped 1 night with no problems.

On the A5284 Windemere Road at Burntside
N54^ 2' 35"
W2^ 46' 17"
No restriction signs
Another rural layby with trees screening the road. This layby seems to be an unofficial park and ride site judging by the number of cars left in the morning. Another "just passing through" site where I had no problems

Hope these are usefull

Always nice to find others! :)

I am having a bit of difficulty with the coords of the first one, N 53 17 42 W 3 18 28 in Google gives me somewhere near Prestatyn. And the third one gives me almost the M6 near Lancaster.

I don't know if I am doing something wrong?

If 1 is where I think it is, its right up on top. Fantastic views, short walk up the nearest summit but you will need a couple big anchors if the wind gets up.:)

Is the first point here Duddon Bridge, Broughton in Furness - Google Maps (http://tinyurl.com/4jszgxn) ?

I have added the second point.

But the third, on the B5284 I cannot locate - the coordinates are incorrect ...

I'd be very careful on the Corney Fell road - as OP says, it's very narrow, and at certain times gets used by workers going to and from Sellafield far quicker than is wise! It's very scenic - but I avoid it at certain times even in a car!
