Took seven shunts to turn around and get back through the gate, I ve just looked on thePOIs and now see that about a hundred yards further on there is a parking spot with enough room to get a van around. pity I didn't know that then I used the actual parking area and knew not what lay a bit further.

    There's a reason why that car park isn't in the POIs ... there's a layby nearby on the lane.

    I have driven that lane in my 'van and didn't find it a problem.

    I know now ,and that is probably the reason WHY it isn't on the list, at the time I did not have any POIs on the tom tom If only!!!!!!!!! but I was frightened to go further just in case it stopped dead end . I then have to back several miles without a camera.

    I always look at vehicle turning options when adding a POI. Whilst I cannot guarantee every POI, those that are known to have access difficulties are highlighted by enclosing the POI name in square brackets ...

    When planning your stop overs on the POI map, make note of any close by incase you need to change POI.

    I think we were parked next to you that night!!!
    Real freedom lies in wildness, not in civilisation.
