Staxton Hill Car Park

Willerby, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, YO12 4TD

Car park located on the B1249 between Willerby and Foxholes, close to the road however shielded a little from car lights by hedges and trees. There are toilet facilities here too although unsure if they are accessible 24 hours.


Staxton Hill Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
