Number of spaces: 150 Standard, 7 Disabled, 0 Electric, 0 Car Club, 27 Coach


The car park is situated in the River Ouse floodplain. When river levels are high it may be necessary to close the car park for safety reasons even though the water may not have entered the car park.

We will try to keep such precautionary closures to a minimum although when water does enter the park it may take several days to empty and clean up silt and debris left behind.
