Roadside, near Burns Farm

This is a bit of a sneaky one.
The road widens at a bend and once or twice I've taken the opportunity to leave the car on the grass verge. Sadly there's only room for one car, although if you really want to park in this area there is room near the road junction leading to Naddle Bridge.
