Headed into Blea Tarn today. Last night there was a sign at the start of the Haweswater road last night saying the road was closed although it also said access to the Haweswater hotel was possible so we carried on. We managed to get past some parked-up roadworks vehicles and all the way down to the car park with no probs. As we left today there was a large team of roadworkers digging up a channel on one side of the road and looks like they were laying a cable? Had to wait a couple of times til they could move their vehicles but got through in the end. Don't know how long its due to last but would prob be worth checking with the council or even the hotel beforehand to see if its passable.
yeah we came across those. i spoke to a workman on the way past who said we might have to wait a while to get past on the way out, but they will move out of your way. as long as access is still allowed to the hotel you'll get through as there was no roadworks after the hotel.
