Visitors' parking at The (UK) National Archives

Here's a pleasant surprise, in these times when prices are escalating and services being cut in the U, TNA is deferring the implementation of parking fees. Here's the press release, just in time for my next visit.
In 2009, we announced our intention to charge for our visitors' car park as part of a wider savings exercise. However, we delayed the implementation date as we were dissatisfied with the technical solution offered to manage our car park bookings, as it did not meet our rigorous customer service standards. The technical problems have now been resolved but the intervening 18-month period since the original announcement has provided an opportunity to reassess our financial position, and we have therefore decided to extend the free parking period.
We will keep the situation under review. However, assuming there are no new external pressures, we anticipate the free parking period will continue for 12 months.
