How to find Damson Ghyll (circled above with Solway Firth and Criffel in Scotland behind)

By road:

Leave the M6 at Penrith (Junction 40) and follow the A66 towards Workington. The quickest way is over Whinlatter Pass by taking the left turn off the A66 at Braithwaite just after Keswick onto the B5292 and follow the road through High Lorton to Low Lorton. Follow the signs to Thackthwaite over the re-built River Cocker bridge and Damson Ghyll is about half a mile past Thackthwaite on the left opposite Latterhead Farmhouse (as seen in the bottom picture on left above, albeit without snow for most of the year).
