Disabled parking is available here also, and Stewards will aim to park you in the closest corner to the event field.

We advise that our 5k course may be unsuitable for wheelchairs, mobility aids and pushchairs due to the woodland terrain. The route is on a mixture of flat tarmac paths and through woodland paths, so anyone with accessibility issues may require assistance on the uneven surfaces.
The car park and event site is on grass with tarmac paths surrounding it. Disabled parking would still be recommended to follow Event Day Parking signs, and Stewards on the day will aim to park you in the closest corner to the event site. Please note this is a short, flat walk to the event site. The National Trust do also offer free parking for Carers or Companions with their Essential Companion Card - more information or to apply for a card can be found on their website here: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/features/access-for-everyone.
