I suggest using the start detailed below rather than Wainwright's suggestion.
After braving the tortuous single track road to Dryhowe Bridge one is now confronted with piles of road-stone hindering parking, which had not been the case when I was there before with Bowland Climber. The Bannisdale horseshoe was our excellent grand finale to our campaign to climb all Wainwright's Outlying Fells - CLICK
On my more recent visit to walk up the Bannisdale track CLICK - I gave in and drove to an alternative start wasting time and increasing my walking distance.
I later found that if I had driven another fifty yards or so down a little hill and through a gate I could have parked on the service road leading up Bannisdale.
See maps beleow.
|That south/north bit of route at the bottom is Wainwright's start but I suggest drive to Dryhowe Bridge.|
The red markers are W's Outlying Fells on the route.
