Roadside parking, Scales, Threlkeld

I'm sure anyone who has driven along this stretch of the A66 will have noticed the line of cars along both sides of the road. To hazard a guess, I'd say almost all of the occupants had headed out for a walk up Blencathra; and probably via Sharp Edge.

There is actually space for quite a few cars along here, but thoughtless parking often reduces the number of cars that can manage to get a spot. Parking is free, but it does fill up pretty fast, at all times of year.
