Limited car parking is available at Coniston Sports Club for disabled blue badge holders only. Enter Shepherds Bridge Lane via the A5285, and drive slowly northwards to the club entrance. Note that the lane is legally closed to all traffic, except for traffic permitted by the event organisars. You MUST drive carefully, and follow instructions from marshals. Park in the sports club car park where directed by marshals. Inform the marshals before attempting to leave the sports club, and await permission to leave. Exit the car park carefully, turn right into Shepherds Bridge Lane, and drive slowly northwards to the A593. Turn left and follow the A593 towards Torver, and the next support car park at Lowick Bridge.
If you park elsewhere in the village, please park considerately. Support vehicle drivers are responsible for their own parking charges, and for payment of any fines incurred for non-payment.
There are no official support or parking areas on the B5285 or at Monk Coniston. Do not drive along or park on the B5285, or on Tilberthwaite Avenue at the junction with Shepherds Bridge Lane, as this is a bus route and parking on the road can cause congestion and safety issues. Support vehicles MUST NOT use the road to the east of the lake, between Monk Coniston and Lowick Bridge. There is a Lake District National Park (LDNP) Authority pay and display car park at Monk Coniston. K2B marshals will be supervising walkers on the road, but they have no responsibility for the car park.
The Coniston Sports Club Committee will be selling teas, coffees, bacon buns, etc, to raise funds for the club. Please support them. Do NOT set up your own cooking and brewing facilities in the sports club grounds.
