Looking at the overhang in the photo does ‘within bay’ mean wheels within bay?

The sign says "parked wholly within" I think that the bit that is parked is the wheels.
If car parks issued penalties for vehicles with bodywork overhanging some of the lines, almost every vehicle would get one.
I recall that Skipton specifically states "wheels in". But that's a different place!

I think as long as you don't encroach on another parking space you will be fine. The spaces aren't big enough to take a motorhome in its entirety so choose one with some dead space behind for overhanging.

Note that the Off Street Parking Places Order referred to on the sign prohibits sleeping, camping, cooking or eating in a vehicle.

That’s very poor to have such a restriction hidden away. It’s a shame as it could have brought quite a lot of business to the town. Thanks for pointing it out.

Is the cricket club still taking motorhomes? I heard it was stopping.

When I last stayed there, you put the money in a box on the clubhouse wall. That was a while back, though.

You think they could have made it more clear on the actual sign, and it says "can be viewed at the office" why not just link to it online or list it on the sign?

It says you can't any vehicle left in a parking place for sleeping in. But there has been a legal case about this.
To 'leave' a vehicle in a place, you have to not be there with the vehicle.
If you are sleeping inside it, you have, by definition, not 'left' it, have you?
That may not be the intention they had in mind when they wrote the rule, but that is what the rule says.
You can't use any part of the parking place for camping purposes (so no tents in the car park), and you can't sleep in a vehicle that you left in a parking place.
It doesn't say you can't sleep in a vehicle that you haven't left.

See your point you are making BUT who in theory wants to test this out? Someone who has a deep pocket maybe.

Can you link somehow to the legal case.Was the fine thrown out?

check clause 16

16. No person shall use any part of the parking place or any vehicle left in a parking place – (a) for sleeping or camping purposes; (b) for eating or cooking purposes; or (c) for the purposes of servicing or washing any vehicle or part thereof other than is reasonably necessary to enable that vehicle to depart from the parking place.

Its on their rules for parking and pretty clear one will be liable to a fine if the vehicle is slept in.
