Visitors attending Northampton Carnival this Saturday (July 14) will not be able to park in the grounds of Delapre Abbey because the land is waterlogged.
The Carnival will go ahead as planned and will be using the park at Delapre Abbey after parading round the town. But the persistent wet weather has made the ground unfit for vehicles to cross and so cars won’t be allowed in to the Park.
Councillor Brandon Eldred, Northampton Borough Council Cabinet Member for Community Engagement, said that the council had worked closely with the Carnival committee to make sure the event can go ahead."Although the weather has been dreadful we have tried really hard to ensure that the Carnival can take place as we know how much people enjoy the event and how much it brings to the town. But the ground is just too wet to allow cars to park so we are asking visitors to make sure they plan their journey so that they can park and walk into the site.”
