Rockface adjacent to the A685 at Whitestones
When the M6 was built through the Lune Gorge it had to take the alignment of the old A-road, forcing the latter into a new cutting in the hillside, see also NY6002 : Icy crags on A685. The crash barrier is probably intended to stop falling rocks bouncing onto the road, rather than prevent cars hitting the cliff.
