Clarkson’s Farm, the hit television show that follows Jeremy Clarkson as he attempts to run a successful farm, is quickly becoming a popular fixture of British entertainment. However, with the release of the highly anticipated second season, viewers of the Prime Video show are being issued a warning.
The West Oxfordshire County Council has come under huge amounts of fire after the release of the second series, but in a preemptive attempt to hinder the traffic and parking around Jeremy’s Diddly Squat Farm, they issued a warning, asking fans to park “safely and considerately”.
“If you’re visiting Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Chadlington from tomorrow, please park safely and considerately,” the post to Twitter reads. “Don’t park on the A361. It’s just too dangerous. And please avoid parking on the verges of the narrow Chipping Norton Road as it causes damage.”
Unbelievably, this is the same council that denied planning permission to Jeremy Clarkson’s plan for a car park that would allow fans of the show to park off the road in a safe and organised fashion. Twitter users were quick to point this out:
“Feels like a car park would be a great idea! No? Oh wait…” one user says sarcastically.
Another added: “Well, why don’t you approve the car park that @JeremyClarkson has applied for many times? It is a very sensible measure that will help the many tourists that come from all over the UK to visit the farm & this will also provide an economic boost to the area.”
A third also joked: “I suppose tweeting warnings is better than letting him build a visitor car park. You go WODC – you’ve got this!”
With the release of the second season, it seems unlikely that parking won’t be an issue just like after the release of the first season. It does however seem likely that the council will issue complaints about the resulting mess. So hang on in there Clarkson, things may only get worse from here… for now.
