Was about to ask what the snow was like towards Alston, but noticed you done it back in late summer.

I hate gorse thickets.

Never had a problem yet!! its very small & i think of the places ive parked have been in car parks or lay bys,99% of the time so providing there isn't any signs saying you cant park & my van is taxed & insured there isn't much anybody can say!!! that's what i think!.The only place slightly different is near Mosedale, which isn't a lay by or road! but nobody seems too mind!! i dont leave any rubbish behind! not ever dog turds because they get tripled bagged! ( army training) :D
