Ranking: 7/10

good place to stay a night.
toilets clean enough, but closed at night.
3min walk next to the sports field.
plenty places left, even in summer.
some dodgy cars and people around,
but enough FDcampers to feel safe.

It’s a big carpark next to a sports oval and athletics track. There are toilets in the aths clubhouse, but the gate gets locked at night. It was reasonably quiet but pretty sure we saw a drug deal take place! There were a few other campervans staying there too.
