New car park for Comer Woods

As part of our plans to improve access to Comer Woods we're relocating the car park and increasing its capacity so that we can welcome more visits, all year round.

What's changing?

We're installing a new car park in Comer Woods to help you make the most of our stunning outdoor spaces.

Opening in Autumn 2017, the pay and display car park will be free to National Trust members. The money we raise will help us to maintain facilities, repair pathways and waymarkers and fund conservation projects to encourage and support wildlife.

The current parking bays will form part of the new single track access from the main road. Passing places will be placed along the access route.

Access for all

Comer Woods is enjoyed by lots of people, both from the local area and further afield. This project will help us care for this special place forever for everyone, mindful of the enjoyment it brings to current users.

Our current visitor site welcomed 92,000 people in 2016 during the open season from March to November. By improving access into our woodland, we can welcome more visits, all year round.

What's next?

Work on the car park is due to begin over the summer. Regular updates on progress will be posted on the noticeboard by the current car park in Comer Woods.
