If you're planning a trip to the head of Haweswater, you might have to think again. The Haweswater lakeside road is closed for a water pipe repair, and according to Cumbria County Council this morning, the closure may be in place until the end of March.

In reply to stevesmith: I remember it was "closed" last March. but that didn't seem to stop the car park at the far end magically filling up.

Is it *really* closed this time?

In reply to roddyp: I'm hoping to go there next weekend but won't if the road is closed. Has anyone got an update on the original post?

Was up there on 17th, Sunday and it said closed but we drove all the way down to the car park, which was full of cars. Was worried when we saw the sign because we didn't have a plan B. I'm guessing that it was open because it was Sunday- no work?

In reply to Mountain Llama: that's really helpful, many thanks. First walk with my wife so need the road to be open or it'll give her the excuse she needs! Did Tryfan north ridge today which was great fun, was planning to do Bristly Ridge but ran out of time - sorry to hear news of dad and lad yesterday.

In reply to hedgehogsdad: Are the roadworks still there in Haweswater and is access to head of valley OK now?
