Hastings Country Park Visitor Centre
The new Visitor Centre for Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve, 'The Bale House', is now open.
The unique building has been built from a range of sustainable materials such as straw bales. The specialist construction team was headed by Huff and Puff Construction and the building was designed by Architects, Cave Cooperative.
The centre is located on Lower Coastguard Lane opposite the main carpark for the Firehills area of the park, making the most of the park's stunning views over the English Channel.
The centre is managed by Hastings Borough Council and our partners Groundwork South. The building has been funded by Hastings Borough Council with grant aid from Interreg North West Europe. The Interreg award is part of the innovative project called 'Up Straw' which is increasing awareness of and construction of public buildings with straw across North West Europe.
