THE OFFICIAL DIRECTORY FOR EAST GRINSTEAD
Whatever you are looking for, East Grinstead probably has it.
As a not for profit organisation we list free of charge all the businesses in the town (any missing will soon be added) to help residents and visitors keep things local.
As a more permanent reminder of the girlguiding Centenary celebrations (1910-2010), giudes in East Grinstead, with the support of many local organistations have installed this nature trail in the beautiful gardens and woods of East Court Mansion for everyone to enjoy. The trail is free for anyone to use. It is approximately one mile long and will take the average adult about 30 mins to walk. There are 16 posts placed around the grounds and where possible these are sited near to paths to enable push chairs, wheelchairs and those who are less steady on their feet to reach them. (Please note the path through the woods to the glade is narrow, over rough ground and will be muddy when wet.)
On top of each post is a beautiful brass plaque designed by local artist, Victoria Dewing. There are four groups of pictures depicting birds, flowers, animals and local places of interest. If you have time, why not collect a bag of paper and crayons (available from East Grinstead Tourist office in the Library, East Grinstead Museum or the council offices at East Court) and @brass rub’ the images so you can take them home. You could challenge yourselves to remember the pictures or count up how many legs there are in total. You may even be lucky enough to spot some of the creatures depicted on the plaques as you walk around. Please use the trail as much and however you like, enjoy yourselves and have FUN
