chesterfield GB I like to walk
I like using the long stay car parks at Manchester as it is very easy to walk from the terminals to the car. Unfortunately there no longer appears to be any sign posts directing pedestrians. It is not clear when walking particularly in the dark where the pavements and ramps for trolleys are.
The entry and exit process was very easy on number plate recognition, but it did cause some concern on arrival as the instructions sent with my booking mentioned receiving a token on arrival to be used on exit.
