The Bale House, Hastings Country Park's innovative new visitor centre, is the first of its kind in Hastings. Built sustainably from materials including straw bales, it contains information about the park, including its habitats and local wildlife, a café and merchandise supplied by local businesses.
A leaflet containing a detailed map of Hastings Country Park and the numerous walks within it is available from the Tourist Information Centre, or you can download it here.
Please note Ecclesbourne Glen is not accessible from the East Hill because of serious, and ongoing, landslips. This route is likely to be closed for some time, so access to Ecclesbourne Glen is only viable from the car park in Barley Lane, or further east from the Firehills.
