There are some free '2 hour' visitors bay in Alexandra Place, and also in some streets nearby (Cline Road) - However while it is usually possible to park free nearby, if no bays are available then the normal parking rules apply which are often enforced. Outside the shop is a single yellow line, which attracts a fine even for a short visit, and the wardens seem to be very vigilant lately. We ask you to please respect the local residents' access and parking- the apparently vacant bays adjacent to the Old Glassworks do not belong to us, and are privately owned. Please do not park there.
