Video of an unsuitable road for HGVs as you will see !, The A523 near Rudyard Lake, Staffordshire.

While filming one of my car journeys I captured this lorry getting stuck on this bendy hill road at the top of Rudyard Lake in Staffordshire. I was driving from Derby to Stockport for the Manchester Cider Festival.

Surely this road is not suitable for this type of lorry as you will see, it gets stuck and then as it drives off it keeps mounting the side wall. I guess his GPS took him up this route.

This bit of my journey is a tiny section of a 50 minute drive soon to be uploaded. If you like to see real driving videos on UK roads then subscribe and check out my collection from the past.

  1. Frightening isn't it. I met a refuse wagon yesterday on the tight bends on the minor road at Snitterton, near Matlock. He barged through and obviously wasn't going to back up or give me time to pull over. How he missed me I don't know. As I got past the lorry the guy in the car behind just raised his eyebrows and shook his head ...

    I think I needed a beeper too.
