near Penrith (NY 613 373)

The washfold is at the south end of Melmerby Village, beside A686. The fold can be seen by parking above the village green, but access to the fold is over a small footbridge beneath which Andy Goldsworthy has carved a ‘dub’ stone set in the river. Beware, the site is by a busy road.
