As an independent Charitable Trust, we receive no funding from the taxpayer and are totally reliant on income we generate ourselves. Income from parking helps us to provide great facilities and landscape for visitors to enjoy.

Parking charges are in place at Ferry Meadows, Orton Meadows, Thorpe Meadows, Orton Mere and Thorpe Wood.

At Ferry Meadows charges apply to all vehicles, all day, every day. The car parks are monitored by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), managed by Saba Parking.
