Doesn't look like a formal car park, there's a lay-bye and a single road...

Looks big enough for 7 cars to park unless you want to do donuts? :lol:

Unless they've put tarmac down which I very much doubt it it is a bit rutted as I remember it + as Scorps pics show - plenty space there though

Just 1 junction along the M62 at J23 is Bolster Moor Farm Shop - showing as 11 miles / 16 minutes from the Windy Hill Transmitter

Gives us an alternative if people don't want to head down to Greenfield + up Holme Moss

Good size car park, great cafe and the pies in the farm shop are well worth a visit - all open on a Sunday

Tom / TCR94 said he was coming from 'Doncaster Rotherham direction' so might be coming along the M62 past the M621 if that's the way you going

A big thanks to everybody this morning at our Yorkshire meet - we had full attendance which was fantastic especially given the weather when we arrived at the Windy Hill Transmitter - very cold + misty up there

Pic taken in the car park of the Rams Head where we had a pit stop for coffee (where some of us had a bit more of an adventure than others PeterV? :lol: )

Its a great place for car meets just off J22 of the M62 yet as the backdrop shows in the middle of nowhere with stunning scenery + lovely driving roads which were well sampled :D

Anybody with any other pics or better pics then please post

Good one guys we should do it again sometime :thumbs:

It was great to meet you all, thanks for the run, some nice roads around there actually.. and a great little discovery that little restaurant, I'm definitely going to make a note of to visit again. The owner/Manager asked us to post any images we have on the Rams Head/The Pantry Facebook page.
