OK, I will do now. I did look to black out certain things, but I was not sure what I should and should not redact and there was nothing on there that was personal enough for me to be concerned with being made public. So I am happy for all to view, but if you are kind enough to redact what is needed as per the forum rules, that would be amazing.

Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment and help, I really do appreciate it.
Just to elaborate a bit more on the background, just because my lack of knowledge of the process might mean I've actually done things along the way that I did not know what they were and so hadn't mention it.
When they decided to go to court, I was offered mediation, which I took. I offered to pay the reduced rate, just to make it go away, but insisted it was not an admission of guilt, it was a goodwill gesture to save us all the effort of court. They refused and wanted £250.
A court date was set, but in Leeds, then a couple weeks later I received another letter saying it had been moved to London.
I was not aware I had any say in which court it would be held at, but I now understand i have good reason to request it is moved to a local one to me, which is also local to the offending place, I will call the court tomorrow and explain that. But so far I have only been told what is happening, I've not been given the choice for anything.
They seem to be going down the route of a contract breach, not trespass which is interesting.
There is a document in the evidence which has the agreement between themselves which I assumed meant they can pursue me.
I am going to visit the site again shortly, at midnight the time of the offence and take pictures to build a case file of the route I took to enter the car park, how it is in the hotel grounds and no signs can be seen.
Am I right in saying, the fact they do not actually have any pictures of my car in the location they say it was in, just because all of the pictures they have were at 12/30am and it was pitch black, I am going to say my car was parked correctly in the hotel side, not on their land and it is then up to them to prove otherwise, which they are not able to do, because the burden of proof lies with the claimant I think?
Thank you dx
Yes, at present they are demanding £780, which includes the £175 title transfer fee, so yeah £605 worth of charges, but one charge was for £300 odd search charge which is quite substantial.
I have the breakdown of the account, please find attached, thanks again
