Sheffield Park and Garden (NT), Sheffield Park, Uckfield, East Sussex, TN22 3QX
One of the most prominent landmarks in the landscape garden is the Pulham Falls, which were commissioned by the 3rd Earl of Sheffield between 1882 and 1885. Installed by Pulham & Son, renowned Victorian landscape architects, the falls are still in good working order today. Normally only in full flow for short periods twice a week, they will be in full operation all day on the 13th. Out on the parkland our WWII pillbox, usually closed to visitors, will be open all day. You will be able to see inside this well-preserved feature, which dates back to the period during WWII when a Canadian Armoured Division was stationed at Sheffield Park. Traces of their time inside the pillbox can be seen in the graffiti carved or written on the walls. Sheffield Park and Garden is very family friendly and has plenty of family facilities such as a natural woodland play trail, baby changing in the main toilets and tearoom, children's snack bags and hot meals, picnic areas, buggy hire, a bottle warmer and microwave in the tearoom.
This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
