Hi all trying to find some replenishment spots for a long ride out of Staveley-Gatesgarth Pass area - is there any places in Kentmere you can fill up - outside taps for example????
cheers

    Kentmere itself has a church and a few houses and that's about it... You may be able to fill up at the church hall if anyone's around... and there's always the stream that runs through it...? I've a friend who lives in Kentmere and they take their water directly from the run off from the hill - into a header tank etc... and it's untreated... plus there's the reservoir at the top end of the Kentmere valley off course from which the stream runs so I wouldn't be too worried about supping straight from it...

    Failing that, Staveley's got plenty of shops (relatively) so you could always do a detour there if you need to refuel?

    Nearest shops, cafes and pubs are in Staveley.

    Streamwater and iodine tablets???
