Pay and Display

Wednesday, September 11th 2019

In order to ensure the smooth running and future sustainability of the reserve, which costs over £120, 000 per year just to stand still, it will regrettably be necessary to make a small charge for car parking in the future. Tickets can be purchased on the way in from a new machine which is located next to the information shelter near the reserve entrance.

Staff from Inaparc came from Oxford to install the meter on Monday afternoon.

The tariffs are only £2 for up to two hours, £3 for up to four hours and £4 for a full day. If you miss the machine then you can pay in the Field Centre (card payments are possible too) - but please look out for the machine which will save any inconvenience.


The Management Group have delayed taking this action for as long as possible but could wait no longer.  The cost of all contracted work on the reserve continues to rise and we have been left with no other option.  You can be sure that your small contribution will help us to make a difference and all money taken for parking will be spent on the reserve.  Thank you.
