How to get there

Leave the M6 at J36 and take the A590 signed to Barrow and Newby Bridge, continue on the A590 to Greenodd and turn right onto A5092. This becomes the A595 at Grizebeck, continue past Broughton in Furness and just after the traffic lights at Duddon Bridge turn right and go up over Corney Fell continuing on this narrow lane to rejoin the A595 at Broad Oak. (This is not advisable in bad weather so just stay on the A595 and continue as follows). As you descend down into the Esk valley towards the river, you will go round many Z bends and as you approach the river you see the 'Road Narrows' signs and an unclassified lane on the right which leads to Birkby and Eskdale (the sign has gone), turn right here and drive about 1.5 miles to reach Hinning House beside the lane on the right. This is the first property immediately adjacent to the road. Pull into the drive and park at the front of Hinning Cottage or round to the right behind the house, parking for 6 cars.
