Centenary BUSINESS PARKING.
There are a number of parking spaces outside both The Climbing Works and The Mini-Works. You can also park in the bays in the central area (ie where the bays are 2 deep).
Roadside parking is also available but please be considerate to local residents. The roadside parking belonging to Sorby's Tools that is on Little London Road is allowed in the evenings and at weekends BUT NOT BEFORE 6pm MIDWEEK (you will get clamped). The little triangular car park opposite the gates is out of bounds at all times and again you will get clamped.
If you're unsure then please ask a member of staff when you come into The Climbing Works.
Alternative car parking is available in the following places…
Considerate road-side parking is available on Little London Road and the surrounding area. However please leave a car's length either side of the entrance to the car park so delivery vehicles, vans etc can get in and out - Centenary Business Park is a 'living' business park with all sorts of deliveries coming at all times of the day, including evenings and weekends. There have been a couple of incidents where cars parked too close to the entrance have been clipped by unknown vehicles and at least one crash caused by poor visibility.
Also please do not park on the pavement/road on the inside of the bend between Little London Road and Athol Road, parking here can cause congestion and make it difficult for larger vehicles to get in and out of the car park.
If you are still struggling, try the Tesco overflow car park just 800 yards further up Abbeydale Road.
Or, the best solution for local climbers – LEAVE THE CAR AT HOME AND WALK, RUN, CYCLE OR GET ONE OF THE HUNDREDS OF BUSES THAT SERVICE THE AREA!
Remember, The Climbing Works operates a green travel policy, and we will give you a free cup of tea or instant coffee if you leave your car at home and come to the wall on public transport on under your own steam!
The below map gives you an overview of the parking OUTSIDE The Climbing Works.
Those areas marked in Green are good locations to park after 5pm Mon-Fri or at the Weekend
The areas marked in Yellow should be treated with respect and consideration to both traffic and local residents. Please try not to park here or if doing so, park respectively.
PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON THE CORNERS DIRECTLY OUTSIDE THE CAR PARK. People often get ticketed for obstructing the road by the police (not by traffic wardens as it is not double yellows).
