Charnwood Borough Council Traffic Wardens are visiting the lay-by outside the cemetery regularly and issuing parking tickets. If you have a blue badge you may park there provided you show your badge and are visiting the cemetery.
Both large gates now have coded padlocks on them. Each entrance has a side gate which is not locked. The code can be obtained from the Clerk, The Registrar for Burials, The Clergy or any Parish Councillor.
