Can you double-check those co-ordinates? That takes me to one of the hairpin bends on Hardknott Pass on a 1 in 3 incline with definitely no room for parking! There is room for a small camper to park a bit further down the pass, to the east, but I can't remember how firm the ground is there.

When you submit a new location, before actually posting it you can click on "Preview Post". Then you can click on your own new link and check that it takes you to the place intended.

PS. Don't forget that Explorer maps and Google Earth etc will not always be up to date enough to give a reliable POI, only a provisional one to preferably check out in person first for suitability or signs etc. :)

If I find a possible POI on a map or Google maps, I mark it on Google Earth with a 'Question Mark' pin, to remind me to check it out next time I'm passing. Got about 50 on that list at the moment!!!

If someone would like to sponsor me to cover my fuel costs, I'll happily check out all the potential POI's around the UK, maybe even the world?!! :):)
