Car park, Whitemoss Common, between Grasmere and Rydal

Seemingly split in two by the busy A591, this (or should that be these) car parks are right in the thick of it, so to speak. Found between the popular towns of Grasmere and Ambleside this is a very popular spot for visitors to the Lakes.

The car park is quite large and always appears to be on the verge of spilling out onto the road, yet whenever I've walk past or through it there never seems to be an appropriately matched number of people in the immediate area. I'm not sure where they all go, but there it is.
