    Hi, has anyone been to Alderburgh lately. The council were reconsidering their stance on the sea wall parking :Sad: some hope.

    For a brief sojourn the only place is the Sailing Club car park but that is only 18hrs.

    Anyone know of any other 'gem' spots in the area?:Smile:

    Hi Scotteis, I was in Aldeburgh last week as you say there is plenty of day parking on the lower level but I think you can totally forget ever parking a motorhome again along the sea wall. I don’t know if you are aware of the history of the sea wall and how this over night ban came about but talking to some friends of mine who live in the town it is there to stay.:cry:
    There are a number of little gems though very close to the sea wall where you can spend any night without fear of being disturbed and visit the pubs in the town. I am a regular and would recommend them. We had a couple of nights there last week then spent the day parked by the beach brilliant couple of days with the weather to suit. :thumb:

    Hi Buttons, this has to be one of the most beautifull places in the world, shame the locals don't want to share it.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll go and get another 'fix' next week:Smile:

    It isn't a matter of the locals not wanting to share, Scotties, it is a matter of some motorhome owners abusing the area. As Buttons says, there is a long history behind the current state of play.

    Suffolk Coastal Council are one of the most positive and helpful in the country when it comes to provision of (and information about) parking for motorhomes. When they were reconsidering their stance they opened the matter to public consultation - including welcoming comments from members of Fun.
