The Magic Road at Spelga Dam is well known and documented elsewhere, so I thought it should also be featured here!
A car (or any other object that can roll) will apparently roll uphill on this short section, which is not a road as such, but a surfaced entrance driveway to a private area of the dam works. The relevant section however is open to the public, and accessible from the passing B27 road.
Gravitational anomaly? Optical illusion? Whatever the explanation, it's an interesting experience!
