  • Part of Alexander Park, Hastings, the Gill is a wood, with waterfalls , at the far end of the park .One waterfall is more or less inaccessible now, but the nearest one is. Wear suitable footwear, the Gill can be muddy.
  • If you go to the map location for Old Roar Ghyll, you will cross over it on a little footbridge, but there isn't much to see. However, if you go to the road bridge in St Helens Road, take the footpath just past the bridge on the right (as you go down the hill) then turn hard left as soon as you can on the footpath, you will walk underneath the road bridge and along a valley full of ferns and dripping springs. You can't walk up to Old Roar Ghyll, sadly, but you can go along paths to Little Roar. It's can be very muddy down here, but it's a marvellous wonder so near to the town.
  • Its a lovely walk, this point its close to the bridge on the road, we parked the car after the bridge and we started to walk following the path, its brilliant, very beautiful.
  • Hidden treasure ghyll stream in hastings...well maintained paths and boardwalks, great atmosphere. Shame you cant get right up to the main fall without some serious off route scrambling tho.
  • Really difficult to find. Not sure where to start from to get access. It was all blocked off and private on rads near by
