Millions are set to travel around the country in the coming weeks and months as people celebrate the winding down of coronavirus restrictions. Many are taking the opportunity to travel the country and see the sights the UK has to offer.

But experts at LeaseCar.uk are warning drivers of some of the most difficult roads on offer.

One of the most famous is Vale Street in Bristol which boasts an impressive 33 percent gradient incline.

Manoeuvring its way between houses, this tightly packed road is sure to cause concern to even the most skilled motorist.

The incline is so immense that drivers often have to park their cars horizontally outside their properties so that the cars don’t roll away on their own.

Kirkstone Pass is the Lake District’s highest road and has a spine-chilling altitude of 1,489 feet.

The road gradient approaches one in four and is traditionally referred to as “the struggle” by locals due to the harsh gradient making it so difficult for motorists.

However, ‘the struggle’ may eventually pay off for motorists as the summit reveals stunning views of both Patterdale and Troutbeck valleys.

Rosedale Chimney is another tricky road for motorists, with yet another near impossible gradient of 33 percent.

The fearsome road is located in North Yorkshire in the centre of the North York Moors national park and is made even more challenging with its narrow roads and a series of steep turns.

A spokesperson for LeaseCar.uk said: “We want motorists heading out on the road this summer to be well prepared and know what sort of roads they may be coming up against.

“These twisty roads are enough to incite fear in even the most experienced of drivers.

“Their sheer drops, sharp bends and uneven terrain should definitely be avoided where possible!”
