The Kirkstone

Natural Rock Feature


Visited 24.7.13

On the side of the A592 just north of Ambleside.
Left hand side when travelling north.

The Kirkstone is easily seen on a rise above the road. There are several lay-bys you can pull into but the best place to park is a dedicated car park just north of the stone. Access is then via a ‘path’ up the hill – short steep walk.

The Kirkstone is approximately 3.5m tall x 3m wide (it looks bigger from the road)
From the stone there are fantastic views to be had to the north overlooking Brother’s Water.

This is definitely a place worth stopping off for – for the views alone if nothing else.
