A new favourite walk?

I think this nature reserve must have everything on my tick list
for a good walk.
There are 267 hectares of ancient woodland, heathland, meadows, 
glens, waterfalls, babbling streams, cliffs and coastline
in Hastings Country Park.

We started at the bottom by the net drying sheds at
Rock a Nore and climbed,
(because the East Hill funicular railway was not open)

and climbed, 

for our reward

and then descended steeply into dripping, ferny glens
where the ramsons and bluebells will flower

in a few weeks' time.


  1. I love walks like that! Thanks for taking us along.

  2. What a great walk. Thanks for taking us with you :D

  3. We did this walk a few years ago, it was lovely, just the right amount of up and down, and wonderful views os the sea.

  4. Lovely scenery but too many steps for me...

  5. HOW have I lived this long and not known what a net-drying shed looked like? Such lovely looking buildings.

  6. It was a yawning gap in my knowledge too.

  7. If the climb didn't leave one breathless, the view certainly must.

  8. OH, that's a gorgeous place. And the tree is quite the character. Some day I will see these sights for myself...with hope.
