Not sure if this is seen as a good spot as we are new to the site but here goes. Our initial plan was to overnight in the large sightseeing car park up the road but as it was very busy and looked like a possible meeting place for young people we moved after dinner to here.

N 51 49' 34.07 W 2 06' 07.90 it is an old Roman road leading to a dead end very wide road and reasonable level. We had no problems but did move back to the sightseeing place N 51 50' 12.78 W 02 06' 04.23 for breakfast as the views are very good.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the info - I've added the dead end road to the POI database.

I seem to recall that overnighting at the viewpoint has been mentioned in the past as less than ideal ...

When I had my VW I visited there en route to Stonehenge,they had put a height barrier up. subsequent visits in our Tranny the barrier has been removed,but the fittings remain. It is used by truckers,mainly in the approach road but also by people for secret assigantions and 'dogging'. We stayed on the viepoint location last year and there was a lot of activity!
