For actual instructions as to how to get here try Getting Here
For the Gardening Courses we walk up from the Hillcrest Centre Cafe
every thursday theres a lovely local produce market here, a great place to buy home made cakes and hand embroidered cards.
Jenny and Sallys route up to the clifftop is the most picturesque, but inevitably pretty gawdamn steep some of the time!
on the way we went up Nuns walk, there to gather some holly, ivy, mistletoe, pine branches and cones for the winter wreaths
afterwards it was through the graveyard of St Michaels church, walking over the gravestones! parts of the church are Norman/Romanesque, the round turret is definitely this old, probably the oldest building in Newhaven, though i think theres Neolithic remains up on the cliffs by the fort
after that theres a footpath past a garden with very comfy looking hens
next stop the boarded up old Newhaven PolyClinic, which was once the Newhaven Workhouse, a grim looking building!
‘Here we go around the Mulberry bush’, a song always associated with workhouses in my mind
after that its across a large open space, perfect for smashing the ice on puddles on a cold winters day
Then past the TV Mast, glorious views across seaford bay to the head at the end… the worlds most fabulous golf hole, like bashing a ball off the top of a cliff.
oh and the llama?! theers a blooming llama up there near peacehaven heights!
