The quiet car park at Noble Knott, with its fine views across the River Derwent to Skiddaw and Dodd Wood, is the starting point for two waymarked trails.
From Noble Knott you can walk a circular route to the summit of Grisedale Pike (790m asl) or simply enjoy a family picnic before heading further up the pass to the Visitor Centre.

We parked at Noble Knott today and wondered about the history of the gravestone '1847 RWS' which looks out over Bassenthwaite. It is on the grassy path created by people going directly from the car park to the road and layby. I have 'googled' it and got no results. Someone must know. Do you? Here's hoping. Thank you, Sue Fryer

The stone is actually an old boundary marker. We don't know a great amount of detail but it dates back to when the land was owned by the Earl of Derwentwater.
