If you are coming from the M6 J 36, your unit may direct you to take a short cut, turning right in the village of Ings. This uses country roads that are narrow and can be treacherous in winter. The right turn where this road rejoins the A592 is shortly after the brow of a hill. Whilst this is in a 40 MPH limit you should be prepared for traffic traveling at higher speeds who may not be expecting you to appear in front of them!
As a safer alternative you can continue to Bowness and turn right at the first roundabout as described above.
