There is a field at Lowick Bridge for support vehicle parking. Please park sensibly in the field or on the roadside verges, and don’t block gateways, side roads, etc.

Users of the car park do so at their own risk. The organisers will not accept responsibility for damage, accident or loss.

THE LOWICK JUNCTION WILL BE POLICE CONTROLLED. ANY OBSTRUCTION OR PARKING WHERE THERE ARE POLICE RESTRICTIONS WILL RESULT IN A POSSIBLE PARKING TICKET.

DO NOT FOLLOW THE WALK ROUTE “OVER THE TOP” OF KIRKBY MOOR.

From Lowick proceed on the main road (A5084/A590) via Greenodd and on to Ulverston. A “PICK UP POINT” is available at Horrace cross roads. Make your way up on to Kirkby Moor and intersect the route ONLY IF YOU REQUIRE TO PICK UP A RETIREE.

From Ulverston you can proceed via the A590 to Tarn Flatt, south of the village of Marton to rejoin the walk route. It is appreciated that the walk route from Lowick “over the top” to Marton is particularly arduous and again an official support vehicle has been arranged. This will vehicle collect the lame and take them to the Marton checkpoint, or, if necessary, the First Aid post at the Black Dog junction.
