    Anyone have recent personal experience finding a weighbridge open to the public in the Peterborough/Stamford area???

    The only resource I can find is;
    http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/resi...rds/for-businesses/weighbridges/37831.article
    ...which is hopelessly out of date - of the three local to me, one has moved operations, one has closed down bankrupt, and one has changed hands no longer open to the public!

    The Chris Hodges Trucks http://chrishodgetrucks.co.uk/useful-info/truck-weighbridges.htm is also inaccurate.

    I have just been to the local quarry and got a sneaky unofficial weigh but the operator did think it might be inaccurate as it was due to be recalibrated - also he was reluctant (understandably) to mess around with front/back axels etc.
    [I suspect it might be 'inaccurate' as my MH has a MIRO of 2811kg and it was 'weighed' at 2900kg]
    Although he did offer to weigh me again after its been fixed but I don't want to abuse his favour.

    So hence I'm looking for a proper public weighbridge :)

    There is J E & V M Dalton in Eye PE6 7UD, just off the A47. Tel: 01733 222391.

    They were very helpful, charged £10 to weigh my van.

    Yell's definition of PBoro isn't mine :LOL:...
    That's 75 miles away!!!

    The lists are at best out of date - which is why I was looking for recent actual experience.

    @Langtoftlad did you try this out?

    Does anybody know of any other weighbridges in the Peterborough/Oundle area?

    Give the local council a ring. Trading Standards may have a list seeing as they are responsible for policing accuracy.

    Yes (y)
    Although from recollection it was £15... and they wanted 2x fee for doing both total weight & axel.
