New car park at Skiddaw Street
A new car park has opened at Skiddaw Street in Keswick to help ease parking problems in
The site which has 70 spaces is situated behind the Keswick Convention building in Skiddaw
Street, owned by Keswick Ministries. It can be accessed through gateways on Skiddaw
Street, either side of the building.
The new car park opens on the 1st April and is operated by local company, Cumbria Parking
Services, which manage car parks in Keswick and throughout the UK. The firm will also
manage the car parks at the Rawnsley Centre and the Pencil Factory.
“We are very pleased to be able to provide these additional car parking spaces in Skiddaw
Street which we believe will be of significant benefit to the town. It is aimed for periods of
longer stay, so should be particularly useful for guest house visitors and local residents,
without increasing traffic in the area.” Says David Sawday of Keswick Ministries.
Parking on the site is through a permit system for periods ranging from three days (£15) to
one year (£350). Payment can be made online or by phone through Parkonomy,
