Parking

If you are driving to the Chiddingfold Bonfire, please park at Witley station (GU8 5TX) and use the bus service that will drop you off at the Catholic Church. Please pay the bus driver when boarding. There will be no parking in the village under any circumstancesTHERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS. You will not be allowed through the road blocks under any circumstances so please do not beg with our volunteers on the road blocks.

Please try to avoid driving through the village during the bonfire. It gets very busy and you will not be allowed to stop. The road blocks will be in force according to the usual schedule.

Buses

The Bus service will run from Witley station to The Catholic Church (junction of the A283 and Woodside Road). It doesn’t matter whether you arrived by car, train, foot or helicopter – the price is the same. Please pay on the bus.

The bus schedule changes a little each year and nominally runs from 5pm through to 9:30pm with a bus every 20 minutes or so. More accurate information may be available for this year on the dates and times page. If you have comments on the bus service after the event, please contact us.

Disabled Parking

If you apply to us in advance, then you will be able to use the disabled parking facility on the green. There are not many spaces and it is strictly first come, first served. You must approach the green from the East on Pickhurst Road or Pockford Road to use this facility. Click the + / – buttons on the map to zoom into the village to see the location of the parking. Two routes are shown to navigate you from the North and South, avoiding road closures. Your GPS does not know about the road closures, so please make sure you take the correct turns when navigating to GU8 4TP.

  1. Hi, how busy does the car park get – do you have to get there dead on 5.00 to guarantee a space?

  2. There is only one car park which is at Witley Station. Please use that car park because parking on the verge south of the village is very, very dangerous. The road will be coned off.
