Alexandra Park & Tingles Dingle

Meet at 10.00 at the entrance to the Park (Dordrecht Way).
Bus: 26A at 09.47 from Hastings Station stop B, or Queens Road Priory Meadow Stop K at 09.52.
Join us for a walk through Alexandra Park to Tingles Dingle, a much-loved childhood favourite of mine, otherwise known as Old Roar Ghyll. A steep sided valley running along the upper reaches of the stream, it is a fascinating nature reserve and takes its name from one of the two waterfalls at the head of the ghyll. Today "Old Roar" can be heard and glimpsed but not visited due to housing development, but it is a lovely, atmospheric place, and well worth a visit.
Please bring along your memories too including any photos or postcards you may have. We will stop at the cafe at the end of the walk for refreshments.

Please note: if it is raining the walk will not include Tingles Dingle because of slippery ground conditions.
