Parking spaces opposite Grasmere Church

This is one for the early bird or for the very lucky I'm afraid. Opposite the church there about half a dozen parking spaces all of which fill up very quickly, and as fast as one becomes empty during the day someone else is ready to take advantage.

On the plus side, the honesty box belonging to the church asks far less for a days parking than the national trust or the council.
