If a machine is out of order and there is an alternative machine within the car park, we would expect you to use the other machine. If there is only one machine then we would expect you to pay by phone or call 07515 062294 to report.

Free car parking days

Car parks will be free on Saturdays until 31 August. Charges will still apply on Saturdays to Redbrook carpark due to its small size and not wanting to overwhelm the local community with visitors.
