    Yes I do...

    There is a car park in Upton on Seven which allows overnight parking for a small fee. It has loos and there are usually campers there the night before a show at Malvern.

    If you go across the bridge (towards the town) and turn right (along the river) the car park is on the left.

    JJ :Cool:

    If that's the one by the petrol station, then overnight parking is no longer allowed. Whether that rule is ignored or enforced is another matter.

    Actually, if I remember the information on the payment machine correctly when I last stopped there back in 2011, parking between 1 and 2 am is not allowed, which seems like an odd way of implementing the ban.

    You could be right Neil but maybe I am thinking of a different car park... Mine is by the re-cycling centre... It used to have campers and some lorries.

    I might well have arrived after 2am anyway!

    That's the car park....Hanley Road...with the recycling center at the back. I was heading up to the Midlands today so I stopped there to make sure I wasn't talking rubbish....again!

    HGV and coaches can stay overnight.

    "Cars"....they don't mention any other type of vehicle....cannot park between 4 - 5am.

    Having said that...there was an old campervan with its curtains drawn when I arrived late morning....could have been there all night.

    Well Neil...

    If instead of your toy camper you had a rufty-tufty motorhome like mine.... (4.5 ton) you could claim HGV rights!

    Seriously for a moment though... Each to his own of course but I have stopped there for a kip several times pre Malvern along with other vans and never any problems...

    In case anyone comes across this thread in the future, I thought it was worth linking to Andy's (UKMotorhomes) post about future changes at Hanley Road car park:
