The weather looks good for Easter so thinking of doing a four day hike in the hills. Looking at parking around Coniston and have seen Walna Scar car park on google maps. Google search mentioned that it might be changing (and/or have changed) to Pay and Display. Does anyone know if its still free? Alternatively are there any other good free parking spots around that area?

Cheers

Was still free today and no mention / notices of any change in the foreseeable future

Perfect, thanks. Is there a gate across the entrance (with open/close hours) or is it open 24/7?

There's a rusty old gate to keep the sheep in but it doesn't get locked. It's not really a proper car park as such, just a patch of worn ground on the side of a fell with space for a few dozen cars (somewhat dependant on how considerately people park).
