Accessible parking bays are available at Orton Mere in the main car park and near the model boat powerboat landing stage on Osier Lake alongside the access road.

A second overflow car park alongside the Nene Valley Railway station at Orton Mere is opened on occasions. There are no designated accessible bays in this area and there is a gradient from the parking area to the main path.

Parking charges apply all day, every day. Please visit our Parking at Orton Mere and Woodston Reach page for details of charges and membership options.

There are solar powered payment machines located in the main car park only but charges apply to all parking areas. Payment can be made at the machine by card only and the machines are ticketless. You can also pay on the parking app. All instructions are on the payment machines in the car park.
