Whitlingham Country Park
The car parks are provided by Whitlingham Charitable Trust and all funds received go towards the upkeep of the park. They are run on behalf of Whitlingham Charitable Trust by Park with Ease and ANPR cameras observe your entry and exit times - this is not a standard pay and display car park.
Although charges apply to all car park users there is a 15 minute grace for customers of Whitlingham Adventure to drop and pick up participants before payment is due. Parking charges are 60p per 30 minutes, 60p for each further 30 minutes up to four and a half hours (£5.40), £6 all day.
If you stay longer than 15 minutes from the moment you entered the car park you must pay for the full amount of time spent in the car park otherwise a Parking Charge Notice of up to £50 will be issued. For methods of payment and further information please see the notices by the parking machines. You can pay for your total length of stay at any time before you leave the car park.
