44d – Hastings Country Park Part II

Hastings Country Park – how we enjoyed our time here!

Looking Back to Fairlight GlenSome of the paths were steep and almost jungle-like.

Steps in Hastings Country ParkSome of it was quite craggy.

Crags at Hastings Country ParkWe saw a tree which must rank amongst the best-looking trees in Britain.

Approaching HastingsIt got a little tiring in places.

Rest TimeOne 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!”

    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!
