Hi, We are going to a reunion in mid September and wondered if anyone has any suggestions where to stopover. VW T4. We will be based near the golf club /North Euston hotel.
Thanks Chris

Not stayed there but there is carpark on Princes Way - but with a height barrier of 6' 9":(
Is that do-able in a T4? if you let the tyres down;)
Parking limited to 18 hrs in any 24 so no problems with overnighting.
See google Earth Streetscene photo at 51 28 2 80 N 3 34 58 08E
Grid Ref SD3192 4800

Thanks guys, I will take my foot pump in case I have to let my tyres down. The Height restriction will be close.

I took a look at this carpark. It looks ok. The barrier is nearer to 8ft even thou I didnt have a tape with me. The vendor at the local icecream shop told me that it was quite rare to see wildcamping there, but no problems reported. He said that the model boat club carpark is more popular. We stayed there instead. quiet night and sunken below main road level, so fairly private. Daytime toilets are at the leisure center about 0.5 mile away. Alnight toilets (I think) are oposite North Euston Hotel about a mile along the Prom. Reasonably convienient for a Blackpool visit but Im not sure why anybody would want to visit Fleetwood as it is run down.
