Parking in Hereford - frustrated visitors

Recommended Posts

As a recent first time visitor to Hereford is there anyone out there who can lend a hand?  On a very wet weekday recently I struggled, no doubt like many others, to find a parking place near the City centre.  Eventually finding a (hugely expensive) space in the Little Berrington Street NCP park I was beaten by the confusing payment instructions and took my car away to a more remote place to park.  Sadly NCP chose to issue me with a parking fine, or notice as they like to call it.   I want to appeal the notice, but NCP now refuse to tell me what the payment instructions were on display on the payment/ticket machine which leaves me unable to argue my corner.   I would go and take a photo myself but I live in London.  

I would love to visit Hereford again another time to explore its charms some more, but this experience has put me off!  Is there any kind person who can send me a photo of the instructions on this particular NCP machine?  

In anticipation of your very kind support.

Thats very kind of you ragwert I appreciate it - unfortunately the notice in your photo isnt the one I am after, and isnt focussed enough to read from the photo - I need to find the instructions on how to pay which are not on a yellow notice but on the payment machine near the entrance, with its back to the street.  The machine has a keypad to enter the car reg number into.

I'm passing there in the morning so will take another pic.
I like how them signs are some 10ft up in the air and very difficult to read.

I know this car park I went to park and could not work out the instructions at all.  It read to me that it was a 24 hour park and you had to pay £6.00 (I think).  Two other drivers were there and they could not understand it either.  I went to the Woolworth's car park instead.
