We visited this park a few years ago with Couscous when she was still a youngster. This time the GPS took us to a dead end (private land next to the car park but with no way to get to it). This week, for my volunteer work at Shorne Woods, I was given a year’s parking pass for Kent County parks – and we end up parking on the side of the road. The top end of Castle Hill road is now blocked off so I assume you get to the car park via the A249 only. There is a wonderful view over the Downs, evidence of an Iron Age settlement and the remains of the medieval castle of Thurnham.
