Car park disruption at Badbury

Badbury car park pre the improvement works

We have currently doing car park improvement works at Badbury to move the car park off the iron age hill fort and improve the entrance/exit to the site.

For safety reasons we may occasionally have to close the whole car park but we aim to have some parking open. 

As part of the car park upgrade we will be introducing car park charges.  This money will go back into the conservation work we do at Badbury and improvements for all our visitors.  The work will be starting shortly.

There are alternative small car parks nearby if you are looking for a less disruptive walk.  They are Great Coxwell Barn (layby just outside), Cuckoo Pen (halfway between Badbury and Coleshill), Buscot Village and Coleshill Estate.

You can find the walking routes on this webpage: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/the-buscot-and-coleshill-estates/walks-and-trails
