Motorists are continuing to drive to The Edge despite the lay-by on Macclesfield Road being closed to discourage people from traveling and help to ensure social distancing is observed during the current coronavirus lockdown.
Cheshire East Highways have put traffic cones out to stop vehicles from using the lay-by at the top Macclesfield Road, adjacent to Castle Rock, at the request of the police as it had been packed with cars, whilst the National Trust car park is closed.
However, some motorists are continuing to park there or they are parking on Macclesfield Road, at the brow of the hill instead. The photo above was taken on the afternoon of Friday, 24th April.
PCSO Callum Edwards said "8 cars were given Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) for unnecessary obstruction by being parked at that location on Saturday. The Edge is on my patrol plan, so I patrol there each day that I am on shift."
Update: Tuesday, 27th April. Cheshire East Council has extended the closure of the lay-by until Friday 8th May.
