......
....
Caravans are banned (just from Sutton Bank, ..... (edited for personal attack on caravaners  ::)), so why the fick are HGV's allowed.
According to the warning signs below, 74 got stuck last year.  ;D

Exactly.
Caravans are banned, but the glider club at the top of the hill all tow their gliders up & down. And have you seen the diversion for caravans? It's the most torturous, narrow B road you could think of

I reckon I could still beat you from the lights towing vs you in your green Astra  ::)
My astra is blue, with a 163 bhp, 2 litre engine. I doubt you'd outdrag me in your mobile home towing a mobile home.  ;D

Thashing 163bhp through its chocolate gearbox, what could ever go wrong? ::) ::) ::) When I was looking at the possibility of buying an Astra van, a few years ago, I was warned this one was the one to avoid, unless I drove it like Tunnie a timid anxious nun. :o :o :o

Hardknott pass is better. Sutton bank is no more than a girlie slope. :)
Which is still pretty tame.  The biggest issue there is the width, and the amount of bloody fact that you don't see the tourists behind the crests until it's almost too late.

I have been wondering myself, so I did a search on "Sutton Vans" that I thought, wrongly, I remembered from childhood, then just "Sutton" to see what came up.

Just look at this gem about transport around Sutton that came up:

It is amazing what a search can do on Google!! :o :o :D :D :y
