This road has been closed recently. Anyone know if it is now open? Or is it only closed at the dam at the N end? I want to drive to the car park near the path for Watendlath over High Tove. Thanks.

This reads as though the whole of the west road around the reservoir is still closed: - (from United Utilities Twitter feed 2 hours ago): - https://twitter.com/unitedutilities?ref ... ria.org%2F

QUOTE Some footpaths, car parks & the West Road around Thirlmere are still closed after storm damage. We want you to enjoy your visit & be safe so please stay off the closed footpaths while we carry out repairs. Check the map of where's open & plan your route. https://t.co/LpwY49n7RY UNQUOTE

This, from Cumbria County Council website: - http://www.cumbria.gov.uk/roads-transpo ... rksmap.asp appears to confirm that the entire west road is closed: -

Thanks for your help, Mike. I'll maybe have a bash at High Tove from the Borrowdale side.
