The way traffic gets on to and then parks at the Aylsham Show site has been redesigned and altered this year to ease queues on the approach to the annual agricultural event.

The August Bank Holiday Monday show received some criticism last year for the slowness of its parking operation as record-breaking visitor numbers arrived during the busy morning period.

So executive members have changed arrangements at the Blickling park site to address these concerns.

The main entrances will remain the same, with the ‘Saxthorpe entrance’ operating for the general public as normal and the Bucks entrance used for horse boxes.

Cars arriving at the Saxthorpe entrance will be initially divided into two streams instead of one and then directed to two public car parks and one members and disabled car park. A third car park will be used if it is needed.

“The public won’t immediately notice much difference in terms of how they enter and park, but the speed of moving traffic along and getting cars parked should be significantly increased,” said showground director Tim Elwes (pictured).

“While the site has its limitations purely because of the surrounding road network, we have thought through very carefully how we approach this challenge and feel we have created a system which will ease entrance during the busy morning period.”
