"Yorks/Lancs" Meet 26/06/10 - Lake District Annual Run
____________________________________________________

The meeting point will be the BP Garage at Ings Village at 11am on the A591 before you get to Windermere. There's a large carpark as you turn left into the garage. From there we'll head up A591 past Windermere and turn right at the mini roundabout onto the A592. This will take us up the Kirkstone Pass. We'll stop at the top at the Kirkstone Pass Inn (Kirkstone Pass Inn: Kirkstone Pass Inn's Official Web Site Page), large car park with good food and ale.
From there we'll head towards Ullswater on the A592, then just before Aira Force Waterfall we'll turn left onto the A5091 towards Troutbeck and the A66. When we get to the A66 we'll turn left towards Keswick.
(Possible stop in Keswick for some shopping...keep the women happy....;))
Then we'll turn left at the roundabout and go through Keswick on the A591 towards Thirlmere.
Just before we reach Grasmere there is a pub (Travellers Rest) and a large layby that we can pull into to have another breather and get some pics. After that we can all head home which will more than likely be straight down the A591 to the M6/A65 and go our separate ways. There's no traffic lights or too many major junctions where we may get split up either so it should be a good day out.:p

just got back home after a week of driving those roads, would strongly recommend the traveller's rest, food is excellent, but would also say the "white lion" in ambleside is far better value for money, hope the weather is on your side for the road trip !! hope you all enjoy it,

Thanks...We are not eating in Grasmere, thats reserved for the Kirkstone Pass Inn. Many thanks TV...I think Ambleside will be too busy and parking a problem.
I'll check out the White Lion next time I'm there

Definitely coming as the hotel is booked :)

Quick question, I know the meeting point and Kirkstone Pass Inn is the same as last year but is the rest of the run following the same route ..... I'm not too familiar with the area and can't quite remember.

Anyway, list updated

More or less Paul..
Of course. If anyone wants to plan another route..thats OK with me.
There is a possibility of a round route via Borrowdale..Honister Pass to Buttermere and then the Newlands Valley back to Keswick..see what others think..OK?
