Haworth Warnings and Dangers

  • Changegate Car Park, Haworth - Concerns

    Thanks for the warning. Hold on to any paper work they gave you and keep the ticket too! Don't assume you were in the wrong, because it is clear that in many cases car park owners are not ensuring that a 'contract' with you was established.The company you mention are not members of the British Parking Association http://www.britishparking.co.uk and...

  • Car Park racket at Haworth Yorkshire

    The Car Park opposite the Edinburgh Woollen Mill should be avoided.When I parked there I just thought it was a standard council car park. Little did I realise it was privately owned.I parked my car, paid the fee of £3 and admittedly returned 6 minutes late and saw a ticket on the windscreen.Then a man with a high vis jacket came over and told me...

  • No banks in the village

    Visitors should note that there are no banks in the village - the nearest banks are in Keighley.

Haworth Tourist Traps

  • by lizeratsi Written Nov 1, 2011

    Hello this is the main car park you see as you enter the town, its visible and its opp the Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop, its called the " changegate" car park.

    They have been named and shamed on many a TV program, been spoken about in our house of commons, etc etc.

    the reason is not only the clamping that is indiscriminate but they employ all sorts of tricks to get you.

    They have people waiting for you to come in, they will drive out and stop and offer you their ticket....

    they will fiddle with the clock to make you out of time

    they use thier own vehicles to push you out of the parking bay boundaries and will do anything else to make sure you get a 75 pound clamp on your car!

    Our b&B never warned us of this car park and not only is the fine steep and unfair but the men in there scare people, they are large and aggressive thugs and yet no pne in the village does anything about it.

    Unique Suggestions: Do not go there, to this car park there are council run carpars - drive around, ask people, but do not park in the change gate car park. You will get clamped and it will ruin your experience.

    Fun Alternatives: There are several other larger and properly run car parks in the village, not as easy to find as the rouge one, but they are there, drive around and ask people if neccasry but do not park in the rough stone un even car park oppostite the edinburgh woollen mill.
