Really nice SC area in the center or Thames. There is indeed no sign but as it says on the website (link in details) you can park opposite of the houses between “Brown Street and Esplanade Reserves from Walter Street to Thames Squash Club” which gives you a lot of parking spaces! We were the only one! Was there from 2pm to 5.30am the next morning so didn’t see the rangers. Toilets near are closed during the night but you have 24h toilets 5’ walk. It is a really quiet area. I recommend it better than the other SC Danby Field.

Great overnight parking spot in town, right next to the supermarket. I don’t expect any as this is a free spot.
