Explore over 660 acres of countryside, and uncover the rare wildlife that inhabit the area all year round.
Hastings Country Park lies within the High Weald area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and most of the park has been selected as a Special Area of Conservation.
The area includes ancient woodland and grassland together with dramatic coastline and cliffs spanning 5 kilometres. Many rare and scarce liverworts, mosses and lichens occur within the gills, and Peregrines, black redstarts and fulmars breed on the cliffs. You’ll also find Dartford warblers, stonechats and yellowhammers breeding on the gorse covered hillsides.
Many migrant birds pass through the site in spring and autumn, and usually include a few rarities such as Sardinian warbler, red-rumped swallow, and pallas's warbler which have all stopped by in recent years.
