Car Parking

Now Winter is approaching, parking on grass areas will be withdrawn over the next few weeks. There will still be:

  • 3 Parking Bays for Disabled people at the rear (4 cars depending on individual's needs)
  • 4 parking bays at the front
  • Space for up to 2 small cars parked close together in a line but well clear of the gateway.

Please if possible leave this parking at the front for those who do need to park nearby.

Please do not park on the road on the church side at the front, to leave access for emergency vehicles. Also leave good clear access to the Vicarage at the rear. If parking on the road, please try to park on one side only, leaving gateways clear for local residents.

The best place is in the old Training Centre Car Park 50 metres along Church Lane. It has over 20 parking bays. Perhaps allow 5 minutes extra so that you are not late for the service!
