Now Milnthorpe has an odd way of displaying parking tickets. You have to find a shop which supplies a timing card, similar to the blue badge scheme and then select your time of parking and leave it on view. The good news is that there is a free period.
We were expecting a big advertising hoarding on the Cicerone office but it was very discreet and not obvious, but we found them. What a lovely bunch of people.

The rain had stopped and we drove to Arnside and parked up on the front for a coffee and sandwich. When this was finished the rain started again and the wind was blowing a hooley. Not deterred we donned the suitable clothing and set off around the coast.
