Parking is usally ok, but sometimes difficult to launch due the bankside being full with narrow boats

Nice little wild camping type spot in a few trees. There is even a picnic bench. I have seen traces of campfires.
Downside is that there isnt much flat space and a well used public walk runs right past so best to avoid at weekends and school holidays.
