I am camping at Eskdale C&CC in September, and came across the Hardknott Pass when planning my driving routes to places of interest, and decided to find out more about it.
Some route planners advise to avoid it, whereas Google Map does not.
I have driven up and down steep and narrow roads in the past, in the Peak District and in Europe, however, that was a good few years ago.
I am wondering if I should avoid the pass and go the long way, as my car is not a 4x4, just a 2002 MINI Cooper with a 1.6L petrol engine.
And no, I shall not be towing my trailer.
Thanks for everyone's help and advice in advance.
