Hi All
This is for walking, not cycling, but we want to leave a couple of cars in Kirkby Stephen for 5 days. We're getting the train from there to St Bees and walking back.
I'm going to contact the train station to see if cars can be left there for several days. But as we will end up on the last day in KS itself after a 20 mile walk, parking in the town is also a good option as it will save us having to walk an extra couple of miles to retrieve the car! Google maps has identified a few possible roads for street parking, although from the looks of it the roads in most of the housing estates are quite narrow and not all that suitable (without pissing off the residents!).
Ta!

Plenty of double yellow lines around. I'm sure you'll find a space eventually :whistle:

Is there a proper station at Kirkby Stephen? I think I got off there over 30 years ago en route to Swaledale for a week. IIRC there was just a platform? The station was also a long way from the town. Well, long with bags to carry, and a young stepdaughter plus pal to cajole into walking there. (It was pre mobile phone days and we needed to get a taxi.)

I usually use Streetview to check things like parking. It usually doesn't take long to find somewhere (or to realise that you are going to struggle!).
