    Already posted in Grahams thread but just in case you missed it ...

    A Free car park at Ramsholt, Dock Rd,.. with no height barriers and no prohibition signs..
    aprox. 20+ unmarked spaces . Ideal parking for exploring the river, dog walking etc ..

    The Ramsholt Arms, Dock Rd (signposted off B1083) IP12 3AB is an isolated pub with a scenic setting on the bank of the river Deben. It is popular with walkers, sailors and bird-watchers. Food is mostly locally sourced and features fish and vegetarian options. The pub is children and dog friendly

    Though you'd not be advised to drink there and use that parking :Sad:

    Just an observation, you recommended a public parking and a public house, the two together can cause legal problems.

    thanks I'll bear that in mind..

    The car park has absolutely nothing to do with the pub..

    note to self.. do not recommend a car park within walking distance of a pub ..

    don't know why I even bother..:Sad:

    I didn't say it did.

    For the benefit of those ignorant of the drinking and being in charge of a motor vehicle laws I posted a public service announcement to enhance your original post.

    Is it a public slipway, and what are the currents like?

    to be honest Keith , not being a boaty not sure about either, but I will find out..

    currents look quite fast when the tide is ebbing and flowing .. and I think the slip is private with 'pay to use' for public..

    some info here for Deben river

    I would make a note on your map that the car park at the pub isn't advised for all but the smallest vans.. only a few places which are usually full and turning to get back up the hill would be testing to say the least.

    The public car park at the top of the hill has plenty of space.. :thumb:

    We tried to park here a couple of years back but was told we could'nt because we were too big, mind you the roads up to the pub are a bit narrow, we go to the other place instead.

    He said he was something to do with the pub, quite polite though, maybe, its because we didnt go to the pub, dunno, so we went further down the road, (to OUR spot).

    I'm guessing a 'busy' person Ray .. :RollEyes:

    as far as I know it is a public car park, the sign says so, with no indication that it belongs to the pub.. but in any case.. you enjoy your place.. personally I prefer Ramsholt, you don't get the motorohoming plebs there .. you get a better class of snobby boaty plebs .. :Laughing:
