Parking spaces, Stanah (St John's in the Vale)

This small car park fills up very quickly indeed. It generally overspills onto the area near the A591 junction, but even the spaces along here have a tendency to be taken before mid morning.

Found at the bottom of Sticks Pass, the car park is a good place to begin an ascent of the Dodds or even a nice alternative to the Helvellyn Ridge.
