Driving to Basics Bank

New Forest Basics Bank is located at the bottom right hand corner of the Cannon Street East car park (down the hill from the Tesco car park) in Lymington.

The gate in the bottom right-hand corner of the car park leads down a ramp to the front of the food bank building.

Access is NOT available via the RC Church High Street entrance.

For dropping off and picking up, free short-term parking is available in the 2 yellow loading bays in front of the boundary fence near the gate.

Please do NOT park on the yellow hatched area as that will prevent our neighbours from getting in and out of their gate.

Some NFDC car parking permits are available to borrow from the NFBB office to park in the car park if you are staying longer. Please return your parking permits before you leave!

Opening Hours

Monday – Friday : 9am – 3pm except bank holidays
