IMPORTANT ROAD CLOSURE & CAR PARKING INFORMATION

High Street and Mill St (from Duke St) will be closed to traffic from 6am to 7pm.  We are advising drivers that they may need to plan ahead for their journeys, allowing slightly more time to get there, perhaps taking a different route or parking somewhere more accessible.  We expect the busiest roads to be river crossings in the town and the lead up to our bridges. To help you get south of the town centre/river while the event is taking place, diversion routes will be signed on the A6 – please follow these. If however you arrive at the top of the High Street, we recommend the Gold Route (as shown below).
