A592 road


A592 road

The A592 road is a major route running north-south through the English Lake District.

The road connects Penrith (and junction 40 of the M6 motorway) with Staveley at the southern tip of Lake Windermere which is skirted by the A592 on its eastern bank; the road also follows the northern/western bank of Ullswater. It passes through Glenridding, Patterdale, Windermere (where it crosses the A591 road), Bowness-on-Windermere and Storrs.

The total length is just under 34 miles; including a short concurrency with the A66 road to the west of the motorway junction.

The A592 crosses Kirkstone Pass with a summit at 1,492 ft (455 m) and is frequently closed in winter.
