A removals van came to the end of the road in a tiny Cornish waterside village.
The driver is thought to have taken a wrong turning and ended up stuck overnight in St Clements near Truro.
The road into St Clements comes to an end near the river going up to Tresillian.
A local resident said: "Somebody directed him down the hill and told him he could turn around and of course he could not. He tried but he got stuck."
The van arrived in the village at about 4pm yesterday and was removed by a recovery vehicle at 9.30am today.
Residents of St Clement said better signage was needed to make it clear the road was unsuitable for long vehicles.
The van bore the name of F Edmondson and Sons, a furniture transport company based in Morecambe in the North West.
