Directions

From the North

Travelling from the north on the M6, take junction 39 towards A6 Shap/Kendal and turn right onto the B6261. Turn left signposted Orton to remain on the B6261. Follow the road until you pass under one carriageway of the motorway, then turn right before you pass under the second carriageway. Follow the road in between the two carriageways for a little while before you reach a t-junction where you will turn right and pass back under the carriageway and then the railway line. A short drive on and you'll see the hamlet of North Scout Green below you on the left over the cattle grid. Turn left and park in the first parking area on the left inside the gate, adjacent to the cattle grid.

From the South

Travelling from the south on the M6, take junction 38 and follow the road over the motorway until you reach a roundabout. Take your first exit signposted Old Tebay/Appleby and the Services. Remain on this road until you arrive at the village of Orton. With the George Hotel on your left, take the left fork in the road at the red telephone box. A short drive after leaving the village the road bends to the right; there are two left turns on the bend, take the second (as if you're going straight on). Follow this country road, passing farm buildings, crossing a cattle grid and passing under two separate motorway carriageway and a railway line. A short drive on and you'll see the hamlet of North Scout Green below you on the left and over the cattle grid. Turn left and park in the first parking area on the left inside the gate, adjacent to the cattle grid.
