There is only a limited amount of car parking in the village, so the village can get very congested in the summer. To alleviate this, there is a Temporary Village Car Park in a field near the mill pond, just as you enter the village from Trumpington. We encourage all visitors to use it, when it is open.
From 2018 the car park will be open on weekends between Easter and the end of September, and on the Bank Holiday Mondays. We open it on sunny days only because:
- that tends to be when there are the most cars, as visitors come to the pubs and tea-rooms, and to walk along the Meadows and round the village; and
- the parking is on a grass field, so we need it to be dry.
Because the car park opening days are dependent on the weather, it’s possible that the car park will be closed even within the specified dates.
We charge £2 per car. All the proceeds, after costs, are used for the good of the village.
The Car Park is operated by the Parish Council with help from The Orchard. Further details: David Neville, 846631
