FINDING THE GARDEN

 

There are animal way-markers from three locations to the garden. Please follow the animals to the garden from the following locations:

- On the green opposite Summerfields Leisure Centre car park
- Entrance to woods from the Law Courts
- Entrance to woods from Briscoes Walk (near St Pauls School)

 

Accessibility Statement:

Since the garden is located within Summerfields Woods there are physical structures outside our control. There are no tarmac paths or similar from either the Summerfields Leisure Centre or the Law Courts in Bohemia Road.

From either entrance there are some steep inclines or adverse camber and especially in wet weather the paths can be muddy and slippery.  

As part of the Herritage Lottery grant in 2018, a gravel section of path was added from the garden towards the Summerfields Leisure Centre. However this does not go to the car park of the Leisure Centre and you will need to traverse some grass areas before you can join this path.

 

By car:

There are two car parks nearby.

(1) Freedom Leisure Summerfields, Bohemia Road, Hastings, TN34 1ET. The car park is for the users of the sports centre and you should check for any restrictions on stay duration and cost. Please ensure you display your parking ticket clearly.

 

From the car park, walk towards the woods, but do not enter the woods. When you reach the boundary of the woods, turn left and walk straight ahead, up a slight incline and the garden will be on your right.

 

(2) Horntye Park, Bohemia Road, Hastings, TN34 1QX. The car park is for the users of Horntye Park and Law Courts. Currently weekend parking is free (as at 13/6/2017). However you should check for any restrictions on stay duration and cost. Please ensure you display your parking ticket clearly.

 

From the car park, walk back along the minor road you came in on and bear left towards the law courts. Walk past the housing development on your left and head towards the woods passing infront of some barriers to a private car park. When you get into the woods, keep going until you reach a "junction" and turn right. Walk down the hill and the garden is on your left.
