Hello everyone,

New to the site so thought I would report that we stopped overnight in the car park at Flatford Mill, we arrived just before 7.00 pm, attendant said OK to park overnight and directed us to the far corner near picnic tables. He charged us 2.80 which is the same as the day rate for the car park.

He left a few minutes later so wouldn't have needed to pay if we had arrived after he had gone. He was back around 9.00 the next morning.

Car park is great, big and natural and Flatford is lovely.

Stayed there a couple of days ago - and the rate is still 2.80. Amazingly, it hasn't gone up since this thread was started in 2007! Great spot.
