Hastings Country Park – how we enjoyed our time here!
Some of the paths were steep and almost jungle-like.
We saw a tree which must rank amongst the best-looking trees in Britain.
Up and down we went, huffing and puffing our way over the hills.
It got a little tiring in places.
One of our company seemed to like her rest stops a little too much.
“You can’t rest here, Auntie Jenny – it’s too muddy!”
“Leave me alone! I want to sleep!”
But eventually all good things have to come to an end. We walked right through the Country Park, onto East Hill and down into Hastings.

Beautiful cliffs and trees and paths. & Now I really do see the importance of a good, sturdy pair shoes!
What a great looking park! I was hoping that you guys had visited Dripping Well – I am curious as to what that was all about…
It’s a small waterfall – I wish we had seen it. According to one website it is where John Logie Baird drew inspiration for inventing the television. I find this strange; when I am out in a country park television is typically the last thing on my mind!
