Audio Tracks about the Countryside Park

17 November 2022

The Friends of Combe Valley have commissioned a series of audio tracks which will eventually form the basis of a set of soundwalks in the Park. It is envisaged that there will locations within the park that will trigger the appropriate talk.

Currently there are five talks. Peter Hunisett and David Rogers tell us about the wonderful diversity of plants, animals and birds in the Combe Valley. Bexhill Museum curator and Historian Julian Porter uncovers the early history of the formation of the valley discovered through the archaeological finds. David Dennis reveals the more recent history of the Bulverhythe fields from medieval times to the present day.

The recordings were made by Mary Hooper, assisted by Elise Liversedge, and can be heard on SoundCloud.
