We pulled into Kinzett terrace car park first before moving onto here as the freedom camping spots there were to small to fit a big camper. Still felt a bit dodgy here but stayed as did a few other vans without any trouble. Was a lot of noise from the highway though so bring earplugs

Just a gravel car park off the main road. Lots of space unlike the other free one a little further down which only has 4 spaces... no toilets or anything but 10 mins walk and your in the town centre which is good. We went to town and had some dinner and then went back and weren’t really disturbed by any road noise.
