Access to the town centre is a 220 yard walk over the footbridge and past the cottages. However, bear in mind that in extreme weather, and with the river running high, this car park may flood.

To the west of the town, this is a smaller car park that is next to a small picnic area. It is also next to the footpath that runs along the river, and is a ½ mile walk to the town centre.
