/ Malham Cove Centre car parking
To avoid potential confrontation park elsewhere.
If you do choose to park there then best not to leave it there late i.e. if going to the pub after climbing
has he/she been said anything about it lately or was the latest back in april? the car park was jam
packed on saturday
The UKB thread was about last weekend.
Of course, it still might be a perfectly good idea to voluntarily park elsewhere to ease the pressure.

I had a chat with the householder last weekend. He was exasperated but quite reasonable - he has no problem with day parking, he just wants people not to park after dark and not to "take the piss" - no camping / toilet activities etc.
I offered to not park there again and to put word out that others doing likewise would be appreciated and he said no. As he saw it, the cove car-park is not his property and he doesn't have the right to stop people using it. However, he is the keyholder for the access gate and has a responsibility to keep it locked overnight. As such, he wants to be able to lock the gate in the evening and not be disturbed at night by campers trying to get out and / or "playing music and taking drugs" near his house.
