Steve in Sidmouth If You're Coming to Sidmouth... (110* d) RE: If You're Coming to Sidmouth... 11 Jul 12


The large carpark near town (Manor Road) should be fine and is long stay but for people on the Bulverton campsite things could be inconvenient if they cannot leave their cars on the main festival car park (if they wish to use them during the festival).

There will likely be a car movement ban on the main campsite - assuming cars can get onto it in the first place of course!! If we have another deluge at the wrong time the festival car park could become very tricky. Ensure you park across the slope - cars have been known to slide downwards even with brakes on......

It is all drying out quite well at the moment (sunshine most of the day), so the rugby and cricket fields may be OK. Famous last words!

Otherwise long term parking in Sidmouth or nearby is always difficult (even outside of Folk Week). One option is to park out as far as Sidford (quite a bit of on street parking )and simply use the frequent bus number 52 in and out of town or walk along the cycle path (2 miles). I have known people do that - but of course there are bus fares to consider.

Or there are roads at the other end of town - Redwood Road for example. A bit posh but unrestricted parking and walk into town quite easily. Might upset the natives but there is no law against it!

I'll update my Newcomers' Guide shortly, www.seered.co.uk/folk158.htm

Can't do a proper link - mudcat so SLOW at the moment.
