    As per title, Preston end preferred but anything on or very near the route that's free will do for me :) (y)

    Just want to stop and have a bite of lunch (Thursday).

    I used to stop off in Gisburn. There is a a cafe that sells nice ice cream with a large car park. You could probably stop there if you buy a cornet. :)

    Car park at Bolton Abbey or the steam train one. Or there's a layby on top of Blubberhouses.

    This looks nice on Search for Sites....
    53.953844, -2.096951

    Just checked on Google Earth and it looks as though it is NOT well signed off the A59.

    We were on the A59 a few weeks ago and stopped on a layby just west of the start of the Skipton By Pass and although scenic it was very close to the road and thus, noisy.
