Imaginative use of an old industrial site. The shops are of good quality and there is plenty of parking.

Marshall's Yard is a very pleasant shopping area in Gainsborough. Plenty of reasonably priced parking, 50p for 2 hours, £1 for 4, redeemable if you spend £10 in M&S. Numerous stores and restaurants, music playing in the background on a very sunny day, all made...More

A fair variety of shops and coffee shops. Main issue is the very small parking bays. Don't go if you have anything larger than a mini.

Car Parking is inexpensive and it is free after 18:00. However, you are restricted to a max. of 2-hours. This applies before 18:00 and after 18:00 as well when it appears to be free. So it's conceivable that you can arrive at 17:00 pay and...More

The Marshall's Yard car park service provider is Civil Enforcement Ltd. (CEL). They are widely recognised as 'Parking Cowboys' operating on privately-owned land such as retail car parks. They derive their income from PCNs for breaking terms and conditions. Go to the website for parkingcowboys. I was issued with a PCN letter some 3-months after the alleged parking offence demanding £140 to avoid court proceedings. According to CEL I had 'exceeded the maximum 4-hours free parking'. The thing is .... there is no free parking at Marshall's Yard. It is Pay & Display site and I paid £1 for a ticket for 4-hours but it cutting me short at 6:00 pm. I also happen to have evidence by way of my paid and dated ticket. I look forward to appearing at the Small Claims Court and making a counter claim against these scammers. Marshall's Yard Property Ltd. are complicit in this by awarding the contract CEL. Shame on them.

The Car Parking arrangements at Marshall's Yard are operated by 'rogue traders' and Marshall's Yard are complicit in this. They appointed them as their agents. The signage states Car Parking Charges apply to vehicles arriving between 08:30 and 18:00. Even if you pay up to 18:00 with a valid displayed Car Parking Ticket the parking company are likely to try scam you with a PCN if you remain for more that 4-hours. My friend and I ate at Prezzo and a leisurely meal can slip past 4-hours. Neither of us were issued with a PCN ticket on our car windscreens. We paid for parking. Some 3-months later we received Penalty Letters to our home address. I have appealed to Civil Enforcement Ltd and Marshall's Yard but neither had the good grace to reply. I have complained to the British Parking Association, Lincolnshire Trading Standards, BBC Watchdog/Rogue Traders etc. I will go to the Small Claims Court and/or County Courts to contest and make a counter claim. From reading blogs this is a common scam. Why any person or retail business would use the facilities at Marshall's Yard knowing rogue traders are threatening vehicle owner with an extortion racket like this is a mystery. My scam letter said I had exceeded the '4-hours free parking' ... how can that be when there is no free parking .. only Pay and Display. If Marshall's Yard had any integrity they would stop this racket immediately or at the very least state 'Maximum 4-hours paid at any time' and not declare the charge times of 08:30 to 18:00. Let's see what the Courts and BBC Rogue Traders have to say about this? These parking arrangement are a hidden scandal. I will let the courts decide and then go public.
