Visitors should note that there is an enforceable
20 mph speed limit throughout the village;
that is most of Church St, from both ends,
College St, and Lowgate -
and most side streets, closes, etc.
BE WARNED ... Folks better start heeding this ...
else it is going to cost you, and I don't mean just money.
Visitors who do not know this village and who are
visiting for weddings, baptisms, etc,
should also note that this simplified map shows
Church Street considerably straightened;
BUT .. it is not straight, and nor is it wide.
Between the War Memorial and the top of
College Street there is quite a marked
narrowing of the street, along with a
20-degree bend, along which there are
parking restrictions on both sides.
Emergency vehicles, buses and lorries, frequently
have great difficulty passing through here.
Mirrors are frequent casualties; don't chance it!
Your mirrors may become the least of your worries!
There are no yellow lines behind that white car
in pic on right ... but you park there at great risk.
A great number of 'local folk' take no heed of any of this, and you are just as likely to meet one at 30mph even
on the double bends in the middle of the village -
AND NOT ALWAYS ON THEIR SIDE OF THE ROAD.
Just Watch out!
Best advice is to get here early to get parked.
There is a public free car park alongside the
Old School, right opposite the top of Highfield.
