There is no entry fee to Cuerden Valley Park but parking charges apply 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. When you pay for parking you are helping us to care for the Park which receives no government funding for its upkeep.

The carparks are managed by Bransby Wilson, a member of the British Parking Association. If you do receive a Parking Charge Notice from Bransby Wilson and you dispute liability for the parking charge, you must follow the appeals process which is outlined in the letter. Please note that Cuerden Valley Park Trust is not able to respond to appeals.

Tarrifs: £1.10 for up to two hours, £2.20 for up to four hours, £4.00 for a whole day.

You can pay for car parking any time during your stay but you must pay before you leave. You can pay by cash (no change is given), by Card or by telephoning RingGo whose number is on the side of the machines (there is an additional 40p charge for this).

Please Note:  If for example – you pay for 2 hours parking when you arrive and overstay the 2 hour period, you can top up by paying for a further 2 hours when leaving to avoid any problems.

Back Lane car park has a 25 minute free period to allow for School drop off and collection.

Please note that Blue Badge holders DO need to pay on our car parks.
