Stepping Out: Egerton Park & The Polegrove

19 May @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Egerton Park

Originally, Egerton Park’s footprint covered low-lying marshland liable to flooding. Much of it was drained by the engineer John Webb to allow the park and houses overlooking it to its east  to be built over it. The park’s design included water features, shaded areas, lawns, bandstand and tennis courts, available for public use. The park came into the ownership of Bexhill Corporation in the early 1900s. In 1903, a shelter hall was built serving as a concert hall and public toilets, later converted into Bexhill Museum. Peggy Goodberry leads the walk around the park, sharing the history of this much-loved public space – and the many changes it has seen.

  • Meet: Bexhill Museum
  • Distance: 1½ miles
  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Parking: Take note of specific parking regulations
  • Bus: Check timetables
  • Leader: Peggy Goodberry

There is a charge of £5.00 for adults and £2.00 for accompanied children on each walk. We regret that no dogs are allowed on these walks. Local public transport timetables should be consulted regarding availability on the day. The walk leaders are Museum volunteers and all proceeds go to Bexhill Museum.

Due to concerns regarding handling a large audience within the town centre we are operating pre-booking [but paying on the day as usual] to set a limit of 25 people. Where specified please book with the Museum at [email protected] or 01424 222058
