Parking spaces, bottom of Gale Road

You might be tempted to ask why I'd want to park at the bottom of Gale Road when there's a perfectly good car park at the top. Well, anyone who's tried to drive to the top after a few nights of hard frost will know exactly why.

Having been caught out in the past trying to drive up the icy road. Now I don't even try if conditions in the valley are frosty.
