Ticketless Parking

We have a ticketless barrier system in operation, using number plate recognition.
When you drive up to the barrier system your vehicle’s number plate will be recorded. The barrier will then automatically rise to allow you to enter. When you park your car, please remember or take a note of your number plate. At the end of your visit, you will need to enter your number plate at the paystations and pay the due fee according to the length of your visit. Alternatively, you can pay for a stay over 4 hours at any time during your visit. Payment can be made with cash or credit/debit card and a receipt will be issued if required. You can then drive to the exit barrier which will read your number plate and automatically rise for exit.

Disabled parking
There are 13 disabled spaces in the first car park loop. If your vehicle is exempt from road tax due to disability, that vehicle may park for free when you show your documentation at the Information Point in the Visitor Centre (terms and conditions apply). See our Access for All page for full details. Blue badge holders are liable to normal car park charges, if their vehicle is NOT tax exempt.

Where does your money go?
The money you pay to park your car, buy a cup of coffee, hire a bike or to take part in an event helps us to look after your forest.
The Moors Valley team would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our visitors for helping to keep our Country Park and Forest a fantastic place for people, trees and wildlife.
