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
TO AUTUMN - Where are the songs of spring? Ay, Where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
"To Autumn" was written by Keats just a year after he left Teignmouth on September 19th 1819 at the height of his skill. He had just returned from a stroll near the town of Winchester in Hampshire, England.
