Eastcliff Park is a large historically significant local green space sitting on top of the cliffs above the sea and the railway line. It consists of three distinct parts, The Rowdens, a lawned area overlooked by the beautiful Rowdens House, the Dell, a sub-tropical garden with three ponds, and Mules Park, open grassland. The Park offers all its users a relaxing recreational environment.
The blue sky bounds the ocean, the white clouds scud between.
A flock of gulls are wheeling and wailing round my seat;
Above my head the heaven, the sea beneath my feet.
Robert Bridges 1930
Around the house the flakes fly faster, And all the berries now are gone
From holly and cotoneaster Around the house. The flakes fly!--faster
Shutting indoors that crumb-outcaster We used to see upon the lawn
Around the house. The flakes fly faster, And all the berries now are gone!
Poem by Thomas Hardy
