Hi im planning a trip to pavey arc tomorrow does anyone know how much the parking is there?

Thanks in advance

Paul

In reply to Paul Willis:

The normal approach to Pavey Ark starts from the New Dungeon Ghyll National Trust parking which has a lot more space than the NT parking at the Old Dungeon Ghyll (but is probably more popular). For either, you might need to arrive early on a summer (?) weekend.

Your post is a bit unclear.

There is a bus from Ambleside to the ODG so you could park anywhere along that route, and do a linear walk back to wherever your car is parked.

Free for National Trust members. Otherwise bring lots of money.

The NT car parks are the best part of £10 these days. As said above, for Pavey Arc you want the New DG not Old DG car park. As well as the NT, there's also another car park (not NT?) on left hand side of the road at the same place which may be marginally cheaper.

The New DG pub also has a field (just before it on the right) which is sometimes open for parking on busy weekends which is cheaper still. Pay in the bar.

The Sticklebarn NT car park ('new dungeon ghyll') often has NT staff and booth, where you can join on the spot.

The one on the other side of the road is run by the National Park and is unsurprisingly priced about the same as the NT ones.

As a local, I , along with a lot of folk in the area, ( ambleside council have just had a vote of no confidence in the ldnpa, interesting to see how many others follow) are not happy with either organisation.

I am on the cusp of joining the scottish nt or whatever its called. Have deep pockets, its hard to reach the bottom

Depending on how cheap you actually you are, and if it's just the parking you are after, joining as an under 24 is the cheapest option.

Yes you are as are all of us, but that doesn't mean you are exempt from dislikes. I wasn't your disliker by the way.

Would you care to tell us why you are not happy with either organisation? A quick search shows why you might be unhappy with the LDNPA and I tend to agree. What is your issue with the NT as a "local". I'm not a local. I live a long way away on the Furness Peninsular though I'm a regular visitor to Ambleside and Langdale.

In an ideal world the likes of the NT and other conservation bodies wouldn't exist but we don't live in an ideal world. Would you care to fill us in on what you think the issues with the NT are and why you apparently think the Scottish NT are a better or perhaps less bad option?

I'm genuinely interested.

I was considering the same thing to save a few pennies but I think that it doesn't always cover parking at English NT properties.

I've neglected my skin regime lately. Do you think I could pass as an under-24? Please be kind.

I believe there is full reciprocal acceptance.  My parents joined it because it was cheaper

In reply to Lankyman:

Sure you could, your youthful Joie de Vive, will carry the day.

The Scottish nt pass works on NT car parks, just leave your card on the dash.

I buy the Scottish nt, because I am mean.

 Godwin 07 Jul 2024
In reply to storm-petrel:

Rick is capable of speaking for himself, but many locals dislike the NT because their mission is to look after the fabric of the country, even if that means putting things before people. I believe it's actually part of their charitable status, so I understand why, but no way will I support it.

People first, things second.

And anyway I am mean, and do not like to pay for anything.

Our NTS membership has paid for itself many times over on not many trips to the Lakes. Also simplifies tumbling out of the ODG and dossing in the car if the campsite is full.

In reply to Godwin:

The NT mission is to preserve the fabric of the country as you say and does a decent job. Why on earth should it be concerned with "people"? We're all free to support any charities we choose. Certainly in a perfect society charities should not need to exist but we are where we are.

If you cannot work that one out, I doubt there is much I can say that will help.

Nighty night and toddle pip.

So should we flog every picture in the National Gallery and use the proceeds to increase child benefit or fund social care? An interesting moral maize. And toddle (sic) pip yourself.

Bit corny.

Take a junior NTS membership and you get the parking pass for the year. Consider it a gift for the junior in your family.

Except I have had a busy week and CBA atm.

Suffice to say, I have lived in Cumbria for 46 years and cannot recall a conversation where a positive opinion was expressed of either organisation.
