/ castle climbing centre - parking?
There's always parking available down the small road mentioned above. People seem to slap their motor on double yellows or on the path, It's a free-for-all, i've never had any problems the few times I've had a car with me.
There is by the Castle and I've never had a problem parking but there are some double yellows and there are restrictions during the day. The wardens never seem to check but you never know whether this will change. The cafe car park (further down the road) is open until about 5ish and they let you park there but they do close the gate so make sure you get your car out in time.
Otherwise turn left into Lordship Park (from Green Lanes) and first left into Allerton Road where there are meters.
In the evening it's fine to park by the centre but gets busy ......
Fair bit of parking but it is worth checking if there is a football match on locally, the local traffic wardens seem a bit more keen on match days. I wouldn't advise parking in the residential area opposite the castle if there is a match on.
