Directions

From the South

Leave the M6 motorway at junction 36 for Kendal/Lakes
Follow signs to Barrow (A590)
Turn right to Workington (A5092) 3 miles beyond Newby Bridge and follow this road to Broughton-in-Furness (10 miles)
Turn right to Ulpha before the River Duddon (3/4 mile beyond Broughton)

Follow this narrow lane for 250m, you will cross a bridge and pass a car park on your left
Take the second right hand turning into Dalegarth Hall's Lane (There is a small slate sign directing walkers to the Waterfalls on the gatepost)
Park in the area to the left hand side of the Hall where there is a small gateway. Please remember that the neighbouring farm has access through the yard so please don't obstruct the way as farm vehicles need to turn

Please note: if you have satellite navigation, the recommended route often appears to be over Wrynose and Hardknott Passes which can be very lovely but are incredibly steep (England's steepest road with gradients of up to one in three), windy and narrow. Following this route is shorter in distance but certainly not quicker than the directions shown above.
