There is a new pay and display system at Holne Bridge. It costs £2, bring your change. If you can afford to spend £1000s on drysuits and plastics boats and shiny paddles and money on fuel driving down the A38, you can afford £2 to park. They have reduced the size of the car park from what it was 10 years ago, by placing some boulders to block some of it off. If canoeists insist on not spending £2 to help the upkeep of the Dartmoor National Park, then I would fully understand if they took further action to reduce parking in the winter. The car park at River Dart Country Park costs £8 this season (payable by card) but you can claim your money back by eating in the restaurant there. We as kayakers and canoeists should self police ourselves to keep ourselves welcome wherever we go.
