The Discovery Centre is located on the edge of the St Leonards playing fields and is accessed from Freshfields, off Bexhill Road. Follow the signs for the Household Waste Recycling Site and just before you get there, the entrance to the Discovery Centre car park is on your right.

Combe Valley Café

Unfortunately the Café is closed until further notice.

Footpaths - 1 July

Most paths are now very dry although the warm, wet weather has encouraged lots of growth leading to some paths being a bit overgrown.

Report overgrown rights of way to East Sussex and other paths to the Friends of Combe Valley.
