Brockhill Country Park

Brockhill Country Park was previously part of a large estate dating back to Norman times. You can still see the old manor house adjacent to the park. The rest of the park is dominated by a large grassy valley, bisected by the Brockhill Stream as it makes its way to the Royal Military Canal at Hythe and excellent views to the English Channel. There are two sign posted trails around the park. The lake trail will take up to 30 minutes (accessed by a sloped path), whilst the valley walk takes about 45 minutes and offers a scenic route around the valley at the southern end of the site. To the north, a short walk will take you to Postling Down, an area of unimproved ancient downland. The rabbit-grazed turf is ideal for low-growing herbs and the rich mosaic of plants provides shelter for many beautiful butterflies.
