Dear Roy,

Hello and thank you for organising this. I am interested.

Could you tell me how to get to the identified lay-by please? I haven’t been there before.

 Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Mark, I've just put my name down for Roy's event - sounds good. I've not stopped in the layby previously but the pin drop on Google satellite shows a large layby on the east-bound carriageway. So, coming from Kendal direction, drive over the river bridge and past the layby, then take right-turn (Haverthwaite road) in order to change direction and rejoin main road heading back east. That's what I plan to do anyway. Hope to see you tomorrow.
