    Stayed 3/2/24 after a day in bakewell, lovely views, lay by is uneven but we managed ok. Few passing cars but didn’t notice anything gone 10pm. Definitely would use again if in the area.

    This is the car park for magpie mine. so it is busy during the day with people coming and going. It is also on a main 60 road so people come through fast. I slept well however. Cars stopped around 11pm and started again around 8.30am (with the odd ones between) Fairly level. Lovely view of the mine and short walk. EE signal there but patchy. would stay again.

    Great location, quiet road at night. The mine is about 200m walk and very interesting to look around. There is a field on the other side of the wall where my kids played happily and the cows (when they came into it later) were very friendly

    Weekday. This layby is on a busy B road which was in constant use from 04am to midnight. its a national speed limit road so you'll get rocked by every passing vehicle.
